New Food - Quinoa and Roasted Vegetable Soup

I tried another new food for us on Memorial Day. I love Zupas' quinoa and roasted vegetable soup. So I made up my own and it is delicious!!!


Saute:
2 tsp. oil
1 diced onion
4 chopped carrots
3 chopped zucchini
1 cup chopped cabbage

Add
1 can of diced tomatoes (I used my bottled stewed tomatoes)
Pinch of salt & black pepper

Add
1 1/2 cup quinoa
2 cans of vegetable broth (I used low-sodium)
2 cups water

Let simmer for 20-25 minutes

Add
1 can rinsed pinto beans (pretty sure you can add kidney or great northern white... I just had pinto)
2 cups leeks (pretty sure you can use kale or any green)
1 cup shelled edamame
Parsley
Bay leaf
Teaspoon, or so, salt and black pepper

Done.

I am positive there are so many variations. You could add celery. You could add garlic. I just used what vegetables I had on hand. I love this stuff. It makes A LOT of food, so be prepared or cut the recipe.
