Quinoa, White Bean, Vegetable and Tomato Soup

To go along with my Soup Swap post on Monday, today I’m sharing the recipe for the soup I brought to the swap. I’ll admit that I wasn’t alway’s a soup person. I just never cared for them or gave them much thought. However for the past few years I’ve become crazy for soups. I’ve become one of those people who are always cold. Like ALWAYS COLD. No matter what I do. I think one of the reason’s I’ve enjoyed exercising lately is because it’s the only time I’m warm. Anyway..soups are the perfect warm you up food. This one, pictured above, has been a favorite this winter. I’ve made it a few times for us and knew that it would be perfect for the swap since its so easy to make a huge pot of it. Its a great soup to make when you have bits and pieces of different vegetables in the fridge/freezer that need to be used up. That’s really how I came up with this recipe. 

I recommend you make it once by the recipe and then have fun changing things up. Change the veggies, change the beans, use small shaped pasta instead of the quinoa. As evidence the version pictured above has kale and chickpeas in it instead of the white beans and string beans. Just go for it!

 

Quinoa, White Bean, Vegetable and Tomato Soup
This recipe makes a lot of soup. At least 12 cups. If you think the soup is getting too thick you can alway's add more broth to the pot.

    Hi admin, i found this post on 22 spot in google’s search
    results. I’m sure that your low rankings are
    caused by hi bounce rate. This is very important ranking factor.
    One of the biggest reason for high bounce rate is
    due to visitors hitting the back button. The higher your bounce rate the further
    down the search results your posts and pages will end up, so
    having reasonably low bounce rate is important for improving your rankings naturally.
    There is very handy wordpress plugin which can help you.
    Just search in google for:

      Lock-ups occur either constantly, or not at all for longer periods. It’s all a bit odd and I’ve developed a bit of a love-hate relationship with the ZEN. It’s a great device, but the issues I’ve experienced hae#7&v821n;t convinced me about the Creative product line. What really gets me is that the Audible content is often corrupted after a lock-up, necessitating a reload.
