I love soups almost in all seasons but need to be homemade and usually from vegetables , and it is amazing the number of combinations that can be made.
This creamy tomato soup with some quinoa es really delicious !
Adapted from : Good housekeeping
1 cup white quinoa
3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp oil
1 or 2 medium onions chopped
2 cloves garlic chopped
2 cans whole peeled tomatoes
2 cups vegetable broth
1/4 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
1 tablespoon fresh chives
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
salt if is needed
Cook quinoa as label directs.
Or look this quinoa recipe.
When is cooked drain and set aside.
In a medium saucepan , heat butter and oil until butter melts.
Add onions, and garlic.
Cook about 4 to 6 minutes.or until vegetables begin to soften.
stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes and vegetable broth. Heat to simmering on high. Then cook in medium heat 15 minutes stirring occasionally .
With inmersion or regular blender, puree mixture until smooth. Reheat soup if necessary.
In a bowl combine cooked quinoa, pumpkin seeds, chives and roasted pepper. Seasoning is needed.
Serve soup topped with quinoa mixture.
If you dont have a blender you can use other gadget but a manual blender is really useful.
(I make soups, juices, smoothies, ice cream only with my little blender)
Love this soup I dont have to drain the hard parts. Only blend.
Taste before add salt . Usually canned tomatoes have salt.
And the vegetables broth too.
