    Quinoa Soup

    Soups are fantastic to make in the Winter time when you need to warm up from the inside out. The downfall of most vegetable soups is that they are mostly broth and don’t provide much energy. I like this recipe because it incorporates quinoa along with all your favorite veggies so that the consistency is more like a chili or stew than a soup. Quinoa is one of my favorite super grains because it has its own distinguishable flavor but still absorbs the flavors of the food it is cooked with. Feel free to experiment with this recipe and add/remove ingredients as you see fit! INGREDIENTS 1 Tbsp olive oil  1 yellow onion …
