MexiCali Quinoa Soup

Everything you love about guacamole... in a hearty healthy soup!

This is just a simple quinoa and black bean soup with a little mexican spizzaz to it.
The fresh avocado, cilantro and lime are the key ingredients're gonna love it!

Refreshing and not too heavy, you can enjoy this soup on a warm summer night

Yields soup for 2 hungry bellies, or 4 small appetizers


Drizzle of Walnut Oil (I recommend using nut oils for cooking)
1/2 onion chopped
Clove of garlic chopped
1 cup of Quinoa
Organic Vegetable Broth
Jalapeno, seeded and chopped
Black Beans (I used a can of organic)
1 Tomato chopped

Lime Wedges
Organic Sour Cream
(sprinkled pumpkin seeds would be nice too- get creative)

In a heavy sauce pan heat the oil
Sauté the onion until almost translucent
Add the garlic and quinoa, stirring constantly for about 30 seconds
Pour in Broth and bring to a boil- reduce to a simmer
Add jalapeno, beans and chopped tomato
Simmer, partial cover, until the quinoa is cooked. About 12 minutes

Garnish with the remaining ingredients and enjoy!

Buen Provecho!
