How to make Slow Cooker Tomato Quinoa Soup

So, how easy is it to make this recipe? First, wash and rinse your uncooked quinoa thoroughly, and set aside. Now, prepare your veggies: peel, cut, dice, mince and slice according to the recipe. All done that? Perfect! Toss all your ingredients, including the spices, into your slow cooker, turn it on high, and hit start. That’s it – trust me when I say this recipe is super simple. After it’s been cooking for 3 hours, it’s the perfect time to check and make sure the soup’s consistency is to your liking. Keep in mind, it’s a hearty, thick soup – so if it’s too thick for your liking, you can always add an additional cup of veggie broth now. When everything’s to your liking, the best way to check to see if the soup’s ready is to grab a fork, and poke a potato or two. If the fork can easily pierce through, the soup’s ready – if not, let it cook for another 30-45 minutes and check the potatoes again.

Once the soup is ready, scoop into bowls, top with fresh parsley and serve immediately. Enjoy!
