Quinoa Soup with Spinach and Stewed Tomatoes

 

Quinoa Soup

(adapted from Clean Eating Chelsey’s recipe)

Ingredients:

  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 can stewed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup dry quinoa
  • 2 cups spinach (I used frozen because they raised the price of fresh at Stop&Shop!)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. dried parsley
  • sprinkle of paprika
  • salt and pepper

Directions:

  • In a large stock pot, heat the olive oil and add your garlic, onion, and celery, stirring frequently over medium high heat.
  • Once the onion is translucent (5 minutes). Add your vegetable broth, water, and tomatoes. Add your spices and stir. After a few minutes, add your spinach and allow it to wilt. Lastly, add your quinoa, lower your heat and simmer for at least 30 minutes before serving… Enjoy!
