Tomato-Quinoa Soup

By , November 1, 2011

When I was a kid, I used to love Campbell’s Tomato-Rice soup from a can. While I don’t buy canned soups anymore, I found myself wanting something similar this past week. Within minutes, I had a delicious and much more healthful rendition.

I used Bionaturae Organic Strained Tomatoes because it’s the perfect tomato soup consistency; just pour from the jar into a pan and add a little water. You could also whizz a can of tomatoes in the blender till smooth.

Add as much cooked quinoa to the pan as you like, and heat until hot enough for you.

Add salt & pepper if needed. (If I buy canned tomatoes, I like to get salt-free so that I can add my own unrefined sea salt.)

Yum!

    GREAT stand-in for good ‘ole Campbell’s tomato-rice soup. I am going to make this TODAY for lunch–it’ll be perfect on this snowy day (which is beautiful, but already our second major snow storm and it’s only Nov. 2, sigh). Thanks for this easy soup recipe on this chilly winter day! <3<3

    When I make tomato soup I use canned tomatoes ( I never have much success growing them!), but blitz, then sieve so that my daughters and husband like the consistency. What a great idea to use strained tomatoes and the quinoa. Love quinoa.
    What a wonderful color your soup is…was that blood red soup for halloween?!!!
    Much love to you.
