Mushroom Quinoa Soup-this healthy and hearty soup is the perfect meal for a chilly day.
We’ve had a seasonably warm fall, which I’ve been loving because I am not ready for snow, but I have been craving that crisp, cool air. Well, it finally cooled off over the weekend so I made a big pot of Mushroom Quinoa Soup to warm us up! Yay for soup weather!
A cozy sweater, jeans, boots, and a bowl of Mushroom Quinoa Soup, that is what fall is all about! Add a loaf of crusty bread for dunking and I am one happy girl!
I love this soup because it is easy to make and super healthy! It is vegan, gluten-free, and loaded with veggies. The quinoa adds protein and will keep you satisfied.
This soup freezes beautifully so make a big pot and stick some in the freezer for a rainy day! I know it will come in handy. I can’t wait to pull ours out for an easy dinner!
Mushroom Quinoa Soup, it’s a must make for fall! Enjoy!
