Peruvian quinoa soup
Vegetables, spices, and quinoa make this delicious soup a powerhouse. Quinoa is a unique grain (technically a seed), because it contains all the essential amino acids your body needs.
It also provides many nutrients like thiamin, folate, vitamin B6, potassium, selenium, iron, and zinc. What more can you ask for in a grain?
