The rejection of meat, whether it is temporary -in the post or as a philosophy of life-vegetarianism / veganism, involves the transformation of familiar dishes . So this soup is prepared without the use of animal fats, and in its nutritional value and taste is almost as good as its counterparts with a meat component.
In the evening, boil the rice. Lentils, washed several times, pour water and leave overnight. In the morning, drain the excess water and twist the swollen beans in a meat grinder along with rice, onions and garlic. Add salt and spices ( I have "Italian herbs" and freshly ground pepper). In General, we cook like minced meat.
Put a pan with 2.5 liters of water on a high heat.
In a frying pan, heat the vegetable oil. Form balls, roll each of them in flour.
Fry until Golden brown on both sides. Take the meatballs out of the pan ( do not put the oil anywhere) on a plate. Put 1 onion, Bay leaf and pepper in the water that has boiled in a pan.
Now let's start cooking the roast. Chop the onion finely, grate the carrots on a large grater and send the vegetables to the pan where the meatballs were fried before. Keep on fire, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes and add tomato paste and spices. Pour a little boiled water, mix and leave for another 5 minutes .
From the pan, take out the onion, pepper and Bay leaf (no longer useful). Transfer the tomato and vegetable roast to boiling water. Salt to taste. Cook for 3 minutes , and then put the broken spaghetti in half.
After 5 minutes, we submerge the meatballs.
As soon as they pop up , add finely chopped garlic and herbs. Turn off the fire. Let it brew for 10 minutes . And ready.
