I love this soup! When I made it the first time I only had beef broth, but it tasted great! I also double the garlic and add more carrot. It freezes well and I usually add about 1/2-3/4 cup broth when I reheat it.
This is a great soup! Lots of fiber and protein. I've also tried it with chickpeas and cilantro instead of beans and parsley and it's delicious either way! Very easy to make and satisfying.
Great! The quinoa gave this a deep nutty flavor, and the spices were detectable without being overpowering. Will definitely make this again!
