Black Bean Quinoa Soup

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Anne Sainz

This was adapted from a recipe on I simplified the instructions to make it easier to prepare…..For each can of low sodium broth, I substitute 2 cups water, 1 tablespoon VegiZest (from and 1/8 teaspoon salt (optional)......You can reduce prep time by using frozen pre-chopped vegetables and jarred garlic.

Very good and healthy soup! The only change that I made was adding 2 or 3 more carrots, giving it a bit more color. Very tasty and even better on day two!
