Truth time: I used to hate soup. Okay, hate may be a strong word. But soup just did not appeal to me growing up. It wasn’t until I started learning to cook (and needing to create dinners on a tight schedule) that I learned the beauty that is soup.

Why? Well for starters, they’re almost impossible to mess up. Throw everything in a pot, heat it up, boom soup. Flavors not right? You can adjust them! Don’t have a certain ingredient? Substitute it! They’re flexible and forgiving and have won a special place in my heart, especially in these cold weather months.

So today let’s celebrate the almost-end of winter with a bone-warming Quinoa Vegetable Soup! It’s like chicken noodle soup (except the chicken is chickpeas) (and noodles are quinoa) (and okay maybe it’s pretty different but it’s so tasty and easy to make so you should definitely try it before the weather warms up, k?)
