Quinoa Black Bean Soup

One of my goals for 2018 is to cook more plant-based meals, and eat less meat. I have recently been back home in Morocco, and realized how healthier it is to eat whole, unprocessed food. Food is the best medecine after all. This soup is filling, full of flavor, and perfect with a grilled cheese on the side 🙂

Ingredients (2-3 servings):

  • 2 cups vegetable bouillon
  • 1/2 cup finelly diced carotts
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • (optional: lemon juice)

Instructions:

  1.  Lightly heat the vegetable bouillon in a pan
  2. Add the diced carotts, cover and let it simmer for 10 min on low heat
  3. Add the quinoa
  4. If using canned beans, wash and drain them first, then add them to the pan
  5. Add the salt and pepper and mix well
  6. Let the soup simmer for about 10-15min while regularly mixing. Add more water or vegetabe bouillon if needed
  7. Serve with a grilled cheese and add some lemon juice to the soup if wanted
