Vegetable Quinoa Soup. A deeply flavoured broth makes this healthy, nutritious soup even more delicious. Add any other veggies you like to this base recipe.
Spouse has her soup pot out again and this time she’s made a really delicious, easy & nutritious vegetable soup. With farm fresh local root vegetables now at their best, Spouse turned some Farmers Market finds into a super tasty lunch last week when my mom was in town with her sister for a visit. They all loved this uncomplicated soup with a rich broth full of the natural sweetness of the fresh vegetables.
Use this as a great base recipe as one to which you can add your own twists. Add Lima beans, peas, corn or any vegetables you like to the basic recipe. I added a little hot sauce to my bowl and that was delicious too, so if you like it spicy, consider adding some to the pot too.
One thing we always like to do when serving many soups, especially when serving leftover soup too, is to add a few baby spinach leaves to the bowls as it is being ladled up. The spinach leaves wilt immediately, adding bright colour and even more nutrition to any great soup.
