Superfood Quinoa Soup - Cozy, comforting, and HEALTHY! This superfood packed soup is loaded with quinoa and all those lingering veggies in your fridge!

Greetings from NYC! After shooting a few segments for the Today Show on NBC and Delish.com, I ended my Friday morning with this: a morning segment with Good Day New York.

MY OTHER RECIPES


I had the most amazing, exhilarating time on set, and then immediately started inhaling all the cookies from Levain Bakery as soon as we wrapped.

So with all the cookies, hot dogs, bagels and pretzels I’m packing here, I need to detox with this superfood soup.

This soup is packed with all sorts of goodies.

Quinoa, onions, carrots, celery, kale, broccoli and pretty much all of your veggies just sitting prettily in your fridge.

It’s a great way to clean out the fridge, sneak in those veggies, and pack yourself with all those nutrients after a week of traveling (and overeating a few too many cookies)!
