Curried Quinoa Vegetable Soup

The weather was pretty damp and dull at the beginning of this week and I was craving for something comforting for my lunch.I had made my Quinoa Aloo Tikkis over the weekend and had some cooked leftover Quinoa.I decided to try a curried soup using the Quinoa with some veggies and coconut milk and boy was it delicious!!!One of the best soups I’ve had in a long time and the flavors were just amazing!

Having a batch of cooked Quinoa opens up endless possibilities and that’s why I would recommend cooking a generous amount in one go.It freezes well and stays good in the  refrigerator for about a week.You can use it in your salads,soup,anything really!

    Can you use lite coconut milk or does that dramatically compromise the flavor? Also how many does this recipe serve?

      I think the full fat coconut milk gives it a lot of depth flavorwise! This recipe serves 2-3.Hope that helps :)
