I’ve been on a soup binge lately. I am loving it during these cold winter days and the health benefits are sure to promote glowing skin and a happy gut.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do

Ingredients
1/3 Cup dry Quinoa
1 Box vegetable broth
2 cups water
1 onion (chopped)1 cup carrots (chopped)
1 Cup Celery (chopped)
1 can Red Kidney Beans (drained and rinsed)
2 Cups raw Kale (chopped large)
1 Tablespoon Cumin
1 Teaspoon Salt

Directions
Add your celery, carrots cumin and salt to the vegetable broth and water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add your quinoa, cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes. Add your red kidney beans and kale and cover for another 3-4 minutes.
Viola! Easy, healthy dinner that you can cover and store up to 3 days. I even put mine in a spill proof container and brought it to work and ate it cold. It was delicious!!!
