I’m not sure where this “bug” came from, down the aisle (Leslie…Corneliu perhaps) or by my innocent cubical neighbor (Hobbs) however the office bug is out and about attacking weak immune systems.
We have to make sure that we give our bodies a fighting chance and with that said I present my coworkers with a great bug fighting soup for the soul.
Do me a favor, make this and eat it so you wont make me sick again 🙂
Soup for the Soul and for my health:
1 large carrot
1/2 cup red quinoa, uncooked
1 tbsp olive oil
1 med onion
1 med zucchini
2 garlic gloves
1 vegetable bouillon cube + 7 Cups water ( or 7 cups veggie broth)
1 can 15oz diced tomatoes
1 can 15 oz reduced sodium black beans, drained
curry powder to taste, I like a lot
pinch or two of cinnamon
2 cups spinach or kale
salt and pepper
Pinch of saffron
Start by heating up the veggie broth. Peeling and chopping the carrot, chop veggies and garlic, add to pot and bring to a boil.
Add pretty much everything to the pot except the quinoa, spinach and saffron. After about 20 minutes of simmering add quinoa, spinach and saffron. Cook for about 15 to 20 more mins.
Pretty simple, thats it!!!!!
Enjoy with a crusty piece of french bread and a big glass of water, maybe even a vitamin C for desert – McKenna
