This is a very quick and easy soup. Quinoa is a grain found in most health food stores, and many large grocery stores. It is a complete protein containing all 8 amino acids, so serve this soup with a whole-wheat roll for a filling and nutritious lunch.

Found this recipe to get rid of some evap milk then ended up using half and half instead. Oh well. Liked the soup after some modifications--No mushrooms. Used tops of green onions too. Sub out Tarragon and instead used cayenne pepper and celery seed. Stir in 1/2 cup mozzarella in final step. Top with shredded asiago cheese. Read More

This was ok but I didn't like the tarragon flavor with it and think it might be better with something else other than beef broth kind of a strange combo of ingredients didn't hate it and didn't love it. I don't think I will make this again. Read More

Interesting ingredients! I'm thinking you can add any veggies and this would be good. I had to add a cup of chicken broth to this to thin it out a bit. I used red Quinoa because that's what was on sale. Will make again! Read More
