Celebrate United Nations International Year of Quinoa (2013) with this nutritious Quinoa Soup. It is delightfully warming and a good protein hit for vegetarians and vegans. Quinoa is a complete protein in itself as all the Essential Amino Acids (EAA's) are present in this tiny seed which originates from high in the Andes Mountains of Peru and Bolivia. Quinoa is surprisingly easy to prepare and these days can be found in the health food section of any major supermarket.
