Quinoa Soup

This is one of the easiest and yummiest things I have ever made.  Best thing about it?  It's healthy AND vegan!

It doesn't have an official name, but I just call it quinoa soup.

Here's what ya need:

 --  4 cups of broth
 --  1 cup of quinoa (uncooked)
 --  1 cup of corn (canned or frozen)
 --  1/3 cup salsa
 --  Cilantro (we used about 1/4-1/3 cup of fresh cilantro)
 --  1 ripe avocado
 --  Lime (wedges or juice)

In a large pot boil the broth.

Once it's boiling, add in the quinoa.  Cook for about 15-20 minutes on low heat (cook until the quinoa is done).

After the quinoa is cooked add in the corn, salsa, and cilantro.  Bring to a boil.

You can either let it boil down or have it with a little more liquid.  It depends on what you want.  I liked it with just a little bit of broth, but not so much that it's runny.

Add in the avocado and lime juice in the pot or when you serve your soup (add to taste of course).

Serve it and eat it!  It's incredibly filling and so easy to make.  We made a double batch and froze it and it seems to be just fine.
