Quinoa Spinach Soup!

on May 30, 2012

I get that the colour of this soup is not all that attractive, but believe me the flavour will make up for it!

This soup is full of vitamins, minerals and fiber!  Yay!  Seriously, you have to try it.  🙂

In a pot…

  • 1tbsp of coconut oil
  • 3 pieces of celery, chopped (leaves and all)
  • 12 chopped brown mushrooms
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1/2tsp of sea salt
  • 1/2tsp of cracked black pepper


Let all of the above sizzle and shake on medium heat for about fifteen minutes … stir occasionally.

Add in one cup of dry, but rinsed, quinoa and let that cook another five minutes … again, stir occasionally.

I didn’t measure the spinach, but it was three big handfuls of the beautiful green stuff.  Let that cook another five minutes, until the spinach has wilted.

Add two to four cups of water (depending on how ‘soupy’ you like it), cover and let it all bathe (still on medium heat) for another ten minutes.


With a smart stick/hand blender, puree until almost smooth and ENJOY!!!  🙂

Happy, healthy eating y’all!
