    Default Broccoli and Quinoa Soup

    Precook your Quinoa: First wash of the saponin which gives the Quinoa a slightly bitter taste (in the same way you wash rice), it is the protective coating that deters bugs from eating the grains. I do it overnight preferably.

    * When making Quinoa i use red, black and white together: 3/4 cup uncooked, wash or soak o/n add 1 1/2 cups water. Cook like rice. This yields 2 cups of cooked quinoa which will last for 1 wk in the fridge (add it to everything!!)

    3 cups of bite size Broccoli florets
    1 TBS butter
    1 cup (frozen chopped from Coles, no tears!)Onions
    1/2 to 3/4 cup cooked quinoa
    3 cups of chicken or vegetable stock (I use chicken)
    1 1/2 cups cream full or light
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Melt butter in soup pot on medium heat add onion, soften 8-10 mins.
    Add stock and broccoli and turn down the heat cover and simmer till Broccoli is tender.
    Add the quinoa a little more or less is fine. Turn off heat and blend with hand blender.
    Return to low heat add cream and reheat add salt (which i do not) and pepper to taste, do not boil.



    Serve with crusty bread!
