IMG_4843

Here’s an easy and ┬átasty one for you friends .

Whatcha gonna need

– 1 pint box of heirloom tomatoes ( the lil fruit/veggie stand sells them )

-6-8 cellery stocks

– 3 cloves of garlic

-1 zucchini

-1/2 cup of quinoa

-1 tablespoon of ginger powder or fresh ginger

– salt to taste

Easy peasy…..

add the tomatoes, celery, zucchini , garlic and ginger to 2 cups of water .

bring to a boil.

allow to chill ** the freezer helps to speed up the chillin’ process.**

Once chilled blend the soup with your trusty hand blender and blend that puppy to a nice smooth consistency.

Now we add the quinoa and bring the soup back up to a boil. This will cook the quinoa in with the soup. Make sure to keep an eye on it and stir as needed.

You may find you need to add a little more water…go for it! can’t hurt ; p

Once all the little quinoa grains have opened up … you’re ready to eat!!
