Seven soups every Saturday: quinoa soup recipes

Keen-on-keen-wah soup, from One Hot Stove.

There's something about quinoa, the translucence of the grain when it's cooked and the little rings that form, that has always seduced me. I say always, but really it's only been in the past ten years that I've started to cook with this ancient Peruvian grain. Quinoa used to be hard to find, but now most grocery stores keep it in stock. If you haven't tried adding this nutty grain to your soups, please do.

Seven quinoa soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Keen-on-keen-wah soup, from One Hot Stove

Quinoa soup with spinach and pumpkin, from A Mad Tea Party

Pink bean, quinoa and spinach soup, from FatFree Vegan Kitchen

Quinoa soup with avocado and corn, from Cheap Healthy Good

Sweet potato soup with quinoa and coconut milk, from A Veggie Venture

Lentil soup with chickpeas and quinoa, from Souvlaki for the Soul

Vegetarian avgolemono soup with quinoa, from The Well Seasoned Cook

I'm realizing I've never used quinoa in soup!

When we owned a health food store in Keene, I had a lot of educating to do about quinoa. First, how to pronounce it: "keene-wah;" how to cook it (like rice, quicker); and its fascinating history. Strangely, I was a latecomer to cooking with it, but now it's a staple in our house. Simple and so good for you... Lydia, your choices look so good and I'll be making them ASAP! I'm always ready for soup.

Tasha, thanks. I love soup, too, and the weather is cold enough now that I'm craving soup every day.

Kalyn, it's a great addition to vegetable soups instead of pasta.

Susan, I'm late to quinoa also, and I'm having fun finding new ways to use it. I'd always love suggestions and new recipes to share, especially for soups.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the RI Clear Clam Chowder! I miss that and I am now in California. I shall be so excited to bring a little RI. Thanks Lydia----and i love Quinoa!

Wendy, I'd miss my clam chowders, too. I love the RI clear, but I'm really partial to the traditional New England clam chowder. It's wonderful to be able to walk into the fish markets here and buy the clam juice in which the clams are kept, and use that in the soup. Hope the clear chowder "brings you back."
