Mexican Quinoa Soup

by - October 11, 2017

It is comfort food week on my youtube channel, and for todays recipe I made a warming and delicious Mexican quinoa soup. It is full of flavour and textures and honestly one of my favourites. Let me know if you try it out :) 

Ingredients (serves 1)
1 long red pepper
1/2 red onion
2 spring onions
1 clove of garlic
1/2 tin of crushed tomatoes (about 3/4 cup)
About 2 cups of water
2 tsp taco spice mix
30-40g quinoa
1 lime
Coriander/cilantro for topping

Chop your veggies and add them to a pot with a little bit of olive oil. Cook for a few minutes on medium-high heat and then crush in the clove of garlic. Stirr while heating, make sure the garlic doesn't burn. Then add in the crushed tomatoes, taco spice mix, quinoa and water. Cook for about 15 minutes until the quinoa is done. Adjust the amount of liquid to your liking. Squeeze the juice of half a lime into the soup and slice the other half into wedges to use as topping. I also topped mine with some coriander and a few crusted tortilla chips.
