I know this soup sounds a bit strange, but do give it a go. I adore it – it’s delicious, filling, and packed full of healthy goodness.
Ingredients (serves 3/4)
150 g quinoa
1 packet of firm silken tofu (cubed)
A mixture of vegetables of your choice (I like to use a leek, some broccoli and a handful of mushrooms)
1 clove of garlic, roughly chopped
A handful of coriander
Soya sauce and half a stock cube (vegetable or chicken)
1. Bring the quinoa to the boil with 1 litre of water, a slug of soya sauce and the stock cube, and simmer for five minutes.
2. Add the vegetables and garlic, bring back to the boil and simmer for a couple of minutes.
3. Add the tofu, bring back to the boil and simmer until the vegetables are cooked.
4. Serve with lots of fresh coriander.
