Broccoli Cheese Quinoa Soup
40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
10 ingredients
4 servings
From "Quinoa 365 the Everyday Superfoods" by Patricia Green & Carolyn Hemming. I have put the recipe as written below but i have a few adjustments. I would add more cheese, but i like stuff really cheesey. It seemed to have more cheese flavour the 2nd day so keep that in mind if you are making it a day ahead. Don't salt until you've added the cheese since this can have a lot of salt in it. MAKE SURE that when you add the quinoa and stock and turn it down that it is actually simmering. Mine wasn't and then I had to turn it up and cook it longer after the specified time.
