Quinoa Mushroom Soup

Quinoa Mushroom Soup

Ingredients:

  • One cup of Keen One Whole Seed Tricolor Quinoa 
  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 onion
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • Liberal amount of fresh mushrooms (we used white, brown, and shiitake for this recipe)
  • Butter
  • Optional: Fresh Herbs (parsley, cilantro, or rosemary)

Directions:

  1. Finely chop and sauteé the garlic and onion with butter. Keep heat low to prevent browning.
  2. Boil mushroom in 1/2 cup of water for 15 minutes.
  3. Add the mushrooms to the onion/garlic. Set aside stock for later.
  4. Let vegetable mixture sweat on low heat for around ten minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, heat cups of stock in a large saucepan and add boiled mushroom stock.
  6. Add vegetables and herbs to the stock and let simmer for at least one hour.
  7. While the soup simmers, cook the quinoa in a separate saucepan and add it to the soup. This will prevent the quinoa from absorbing excessive amounts of the stock.
  8. Season to taste and enjoy!
