Great soup! I think I used about 1/3 cup of quinoa, by the way. Just two notes: it's a good idea to rinse quinoa before you cook it, because it has a bitter-tasting powder on it before it's rinsed; and I used about 1 cup of chopped onion (there is no onion in the ingredient list, but it's mentioned in the instructions). Thanks for sharing!
this soup is absoloutely delicious! i didn't have any fresh tomatoes or parsley, so i used a tin of diced tomatoes and a teaspoon of chopped mint, and swapped the regular paprika for smoked paprika and added a chooped onion. this one is definately going in my cookbook. thanks posting!
