This Vegetable Quinoa Soup is a nice change of pace from traditional vegetable soup. It's loaded with vegetables and protein thanks to the quinoa, is full of flavor and is best served with crusty bread.
In a pot, bring water and quinoa to a boil, then turn heat down and simmer until quinoa has absorbed the water and is cooked.
Dice onion and mince garlic and place them in a large skillet with olive oil. Cook for a few minutes on medium heat and then add the chopped up carrots and celery. Cook those for 3-5 minutes and then add the quinoa, vegetable broth, parsley, and red pepper flakes to the pan. Simmer on low for 15 minutes.
Pour into bowls and enjoy!
*This soup is delicious on its own, but even better when served with crusty bread!
