Ecuadorean Quinoa and Vegetable Soup

Ecuadorean Quinoa and Vegetable Soup created by May I Have That Rec

I have tried several recipes using quinoa and never liked any of them until this one. It is important to rinse this grain very, very well to get rid of the bitter taste. This is an adapted Moosewood recipe.

    I added 1 tbs of crushed garlic once the onions were cooked, then 1 can of black beans and 1 cup of corn (with the zucchini) and it was fantastic.

    I made this tonight. This recipe is a great way to clean out the veggie drawer. I omitted the potato, and added half of a small head of cabbage chopped,one carrot,one stalk of celery, one jalapeno with ribs and seeds,three green onions and some dehydrated onion, a zucchini, the quinoa,a 14 1/2 oz can of diced tomatoes, 6 cloves of chopped garlic ( husband had a bad cold ) and about 4 1/2 cups of chicken broth and cilantro and juice of 1 lemon at the end. Absolutely delicious!!! I loved it ,hubby hasn't tried it yet. I will be making this again, great on a cold and damp night!! Thanks for sharing.
