Carrot Quinoa Soup

I’m working on a post for tonight with a recipe for my Homemade Laundry Soap, but I just wanted to really quick post a recipe for the soup we had last night for dinner! A few days ago I posted about using the greens of your root vegetables… Well, we did that here, with carrot tops, this time… in Carrot Quinoa Soup! I hope you like it!

Olive oil
1 large onion, diced
6 large carrots, with greens
2 large stalks of celery, chopped
6 cups of vegetable stock
1 cup of quinoa, rinsed
1 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme
Salt and pepper to taste

Separate the carrots from the greens. Separate the leafy parts of the greens from the stems (a note about carrot tops: like most greens, they need a very good rinsing to remove grit before using) Chop the leaves and set aside, then chop the carrots. Chop the onion and celery, then put the onion, celery and carrots into a soup pot with some olive oil. Cook until the onions are translucent. Next, add the stock, quinoa, thyme and greens. Simmer for 30 minutes or so, or until the quinoa is cooked. If it’s too thick, as a smidge more stock or water. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
