Spring Soup

nlindq suggested I type up this recipe. It was yum!

Asparagus Spinach Quinoa Soup


Asparagus Spinach Quinoa Soup

1/2 bundle of Edgar Farms asparagus, chopped
8 cups of your neighbour's amazing abundant spinach (leaves larger than my hand!), chopped
4 tablespoons of your neighbour's abundant dill, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 cup red quinoa, from MoNa Food
1 cup mushroom soup base, from MoNa Food
3 cups of milk or milk substitute or some mixture of tasty liquids (2 cups skim milk, 1 cup rice milk)
3 cups of water
salt and pepper to taste

Saute the chopped onion until softened, add the veggies and dill and stir until the spinach is wilted. Add the quinoa and mushroom soup base and mix. Add the milk and water, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Taste! Add your salt and pepper. Insert immersion blender and puree. Serve! I broiled some salmon and buttered some rye bread, but do whatever you want. Hugo also enjoyed this soup.

ETA: I forgot the dill! It was extra special because of the fresh dill.

That sounds soooo good. And I could totally make a variant of it with stuff I have at home right now!
