It was a little rainy and cool this weekend so I threw together this yummy soup 🙂

Ingredients

3-4 cups organic vegetable broth
2 cups cooked quinoa
1 can diced tomatoes
1 zucchini, cut up
1-2 cups broccoli florets
2 carrots, cut up
2 stalks of celery, diced
1 cup pinto beans
1/2 large yellow onion, diced
1 jalapeno pepper, diced (leave in some or all seeds if you like it spicy)
1-2 Tablespoons chopped garlic
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon cumin
sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Put oil in medium soup pot and add carrots, celery, onion, garlic, jalapeno, and zucchini.  Saute and steam slightly then add the broccoli and cook 1 to 2 more minutes.

Add vegetable broth, beans, tomatoes in juice, and quinoa.  If it is too thick add some water or more broth.  Add cumin and salt and pepper and let simmer for 10 minutes.

Enjoy!  Add any other spices or veggies that you like.  I took some of my homemade rye bread and made some croutons to put on top….Mmmmm.
