    Chef mariajane's Note:

    Most people know they should be eating more whole grains. Most people don't have the time to. Whole grains may taste better and be healthier for you than refined grains, but they also generally take much longer to cook. This easy, flavorful soup uses quinoa (prounced KEEN - wah), which is available alongside rice at most grocers and natural foods stores. Canned black beans or chopped cooked chicken are excellent additions to this soup.

      This is really a delicious quinoa salad. I wouldn't really call it a soup. The quinoa absorbed all of the broth, even after I added extra. However, as a quinoa salad, this is really delicious. I love the fresh flavors of the lime and cilantro. Thanks for sharing!

      This is a great quick recipe. The best part is how easy it is to adapt to your personal taste by adding or omitting ingredients as desired. I hate avocado. So I skipped that, added more salsa, etc. it seems nearly everyone would agree that 4c of broth is not near enough so be prepared to add more. It's very healthy & flavorful. I'll be memorizing this one for quick weekend lunches. :)

      Loved this soup. Also added sauteed onions, peppers and garlic, and probably double the salsa. Otherwise made to the recipe. We loved, loved, loved the freshly squeezed lime and the avocado. Definite keeper.
