Avocado, Jalapeno & Cilantro soup

Quinoa & Cilantro Soup Recipe

serves 6


4 tablespoons olive oil
3 small red onions, finely chopped
4 serranos, finely chopped (reserving a bit for garnish), depending on your preference for heat!
4 garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon toasted and ground coriander
1 cup quinoa
6 cups chicken stock
1 large bunch cilantro, chopped (reserving a few sprigs for garnish)
juice of 3 limes (according to your taste!)
1 avocado, sliced or chopped, your choice!

 

Try this hearty, protein-rich soup that is sure to tickle and satisfy!

Heat the oil and over low heat saute the onions, garlic and some serrano chili. Sauté until soft, about three minutes. Add the ground coriander, stir, inhale the gorgeousness, and then add the quinoa. Stir and toast quinoa for a bit. Cover with chicken stock and cook until the quinoa is tender. It will absorb a lot of broth, so plan on adding more broth or water to get the consistency you like. Taste. Play with salt, lime, and serrano until the balance is bright and just perfect for you. Add the cilantro & avocado and enjoy this lovely, healthy soup!
