Quinoa Vegetable Soup

Even though it was 93 degrees outside, I MADE SOUP!

I love soup. I really do! :) I love it all year round. Soup is easy to make and there are soooo many flavors and types of soup that I really could eat soup EVERYDAY.

Today, I was looking on some friends blogs trying to decide what I wanted to make for dinner. After several blogs I finally found something that sounded good. It also was a recipe that I had most of the ingredients.

I did change a few things and I did add a few things here but YUMMY! This soup is great!!!! I am already looking forward to making this again with a few more ingredients.

The Ingredients:
1 TBSP Olive Oil or RAW butter
2/3 cups quinoa
2 carrots, diced
3/4 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1/4 orange bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1/4 zucchini, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 (15 ounces) chicken broth (I used homemade)
3 1/2 cups water
2 large tomatoes, finely chopped
1/4 - 1/2 head of cabbage, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
fresh or dried parsley

The Directions:
Heat the Olive Oil or Raw butter in a large pot on medium-high heat. Stir in quinoa, carrots, bell peppers and garlic. Cook a few minutes, until lightly browned. Stir frequently.

Pour in the chicken broth, water, tomatoes, zucchini and cabbage. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until the quinoa and vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. I added a little parsley in the soup and also garnished with parsley before serving.

I really think you could add any kind of vegetables to this soup and it would be good!
