Homemade Mexican Quinoa Soup
If you have to host a summer gathering soon, this homemade mexican quinoa soup may be the perfect one for you to try. It may be vegan, but don’t worry- it’s an easy sell to family members and friends who might not be so keen on an all veggie diet.
Soups are great because they are so easy to make, and when you need to entertain a big party of people, simple is exactly what you want. This soup is made in a crock-pot, so you can make it in the morning, leave it to cook all day, and then bust it out for dinner, absolutely stress-free! It doesn’t get much better then that!
You probably already know that quinoa is crazy good for you, being high in protein and gluten-free, which makes it an ideal way to get much needed protein for people who have cut gluten out of their diets. While quinoa tastes great in this recipe, you can also try mixing it in to some of your go-to favourites, because it’s a perfect base to any meal, and can easily replace the pasta or rice elements of any dish.
This quinoa soup is infused with the spicy flavors of cumin, peppers and cilantro, and is inspired from a fresh summer salad (check out a recipe for that below). This soup is great for a family gathering on a summer night when the sun has set and brought the heat with it. On these cooler summer nights, treat your family to this succulent and surprisingly hearty all-natural soup.
Remember, fresh ingredients are always best, especially for a summer meal.
