Hearty warm soups are my dinner of choice right now, and this soup doesn’t disappoint. The quinoa adds even more protein to the dish, making it a soup that will fill any eater. I like to use poblano peppers in it to give it the slightest touch of spice in the background, but bell peppers work great as well. You could also add a can of diced tomatoes to deepen the flavor. Also since this freezes great, make up a big batch and save individual portions for quick meals in the future.
