Using leftover veggies I had on hand gave me a great starting point for this easy veggie soup. There was also the usual mix of carrots, celery and onions. Along with a can of diced tomatoes, chickpeas (optionally white beans too), quinoa and herbs to complete the palate. A vegan quinoa vegetable soup that is not only super easy to prepare, but also contains healthy and low-fat ingredients overall. All attributes I love!

If you don’t like quinoa yet, you’ll love it in the soup – I promise! It adds fiber, protein and cooks perfectly every time.
