Not being a big pasta eater, I enjoy to cook/eat soups….many  and for all seasons …
Ingredients (4 people)
200 gr. Basmati rice
100 gr. barley
100 gr spelt
100 gr. Lentils
1 onion
1 clove garlic
1 slice of bread
Extra virgin olive oil
1 carrot
1 celery stalk
The only boring thing in making this soup, is that spelt-barley and lentils should be cooked separately because they have different cooking times. In a deep pan, sauté in oil the chopped onion and garlic, carrot and celery. When gold, add lentils and barley-barley previously boiled and add 1 liter of water. Add of salt and pepper and boil it for about 10 minutes. Add basmati rice (it cooks very quickly about 10 minutes.
In a pan fry the bread cut into cubes with oil until it becomes gold and crisp. When the soup is ready, serve it hot, with croutons, a sprinkling of parsley and a drizzle of olive oil
