Quinoa Soup from Ecuador
My friend from Ecuador made it for us and I tried to replicate it with much success. It's now one of my favorite soup to make. If you like a creamier soup, you can make it with 3 cups soy milk and 1 cup water.
- 1 cup raw quinoa
- 1 big onion, chopped
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tomatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 vegetable bouillon cube
- 6 potatoes, cubed
- 2 teaspoons cumin
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 cups water
- 2 cups soymilk
Rinse quinoa 3 times and drain well.
Saute the onion in the olive oil for 5 minutes. Add the salt and cumin.
Add the quinoa, potatoes, tomatoes, water and soy milk.
Bring to a boil for about 5 minutes, then cover and let simmer until potatoes are tender.
You may add water or milk if necessary.
