Roasted tomato and quinoa soup 2

I’m still all about the quick and easy recipes right now. Somehow, even though Finley is now in nursery a couple of days I feel like I have less time! However, I’m doing my best to ensure that doesn’t mean I, or the rest of the family, have to eat poorly. Every two weeks I get a lovely organic veg box from Riverford and I enjoy creating random meals with it’s contents.

Recently it’s almost always contained tomatoes which I really don’t like raw. I created this really easy but delicious soup to use them up.

It’s as easy as popping a tray of veg in the oven, blending them up with stock and stirring through half a pack of cooked quinoa. It’s so delicious too!

Have you ever had a soup containing grains? How often do you make your own soup?
