Equadorian Quinoa Vegetable Soup

(Click photo for link to recipe.)
OH MY GOODNESS! This soup is FANTASTIC! Just right for a cool crisp night! I added a few extra veggies such as leeks, carrots, celery...etc. (cleaning out the fridge.) I also doubled everything so that I could freeze some for a later time! You HAVE to try this soup! My husband said it would be really great with okra! He's on an okra kick...everything could benefit from a little okra in his opinion! ha! I will add it next time!

I buy quinoa in the bulk section at Wild Oats Market. Did you know it's one of the highest protein containing grains there is? (aside from being oh-so yummy!)

Bonnie said...

I did know that Mom ... and it is a complete protein. Don't know exactly what that means, but I keep reading it and I know it's good ! ha ha

Have you tried this soup yet ?

Beautiful photo! Is that a sprig of cilantro on top of the soup? I love cilantro!

Yes, a sprig of cilantro...I added chopped fresh cilantro to the soup after removing it from the heat. The cilantro and the lime juice together really make this the most delicious flavor! :)
