Once you make a number of soups following recipes, you will find it easier to whip up something like this organic tomato vegetable quinoa soup without following directions. Just like learning a language, you begin to grasp what goes together. You also begin to learn what veggies to cook first so that nothing gets over cooked.
This organic tomato vegetable quinoa soup recipe was something I whipped up from what was hanging out in the fridge and the cupboards. Much like a chili recipe, there’s lots of freedom for vegetable ingredients once you provide the main staples.
These are a few ingredients I always have on hand:
- Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
- Organic Tomato Paste – Tomato paste is always helpful if you don’t have tomatoes or if they are not in season.
- Vegetable Bouillon
Tomato Vegetable Quinoa Soup
This tomato vegetable quinoa soup is a wonderful medley of vegetables with a kick of spice plus quinoa added for extra protein and thickening for a quickly made soup using the Instant Pot.
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil Organic Extra Virgin
- 2 cubes Vegetable Bouillon Rapunzel Non-GMO
- 4 cups Water
- 2 tsp Italian Seasoning Organic
- 2 stalks Celery - Diced Organic
- 2 sticks Carrots - Diced Organic
- 1 Onion - Diced Organic
- 1 tbps Bragg Amino Acids Soy Sauce Alternative
- 6 Crimini Mushrooms Organic
- 1 Bay Leaf Organic
- 1 Hot Pepper - Jalapeno, Fresco etc Organic
- 2 cups Tomatoes - Diced Organic
- 1 Zucchini - Diced Organic
- 1 bunch Kale - Stems Removed & Chopped Organic
- 2 cloves Garlic - Diced Organic

The main work in this recipe involves chopping all the veggies. Once you've prepped all the veggies, simply add all the ingredients to your pressure cooker, the Instant Pot is great, and set it on High for 15 minutes.
You could also slow cook this in a crock pot on High for the day, or bring to a boil on a stove pot and then simmer for a few hours. My vote - Instant Pot!!!
