Beef, quinoa and parsnip soup

Posted by on Mar 6, 2014 in Dinner Tonight | 0 comments

The recipe was created because I have a sick husband and a giant leftover steak. I knew I wanted to make something hot and healthy to get him on the mend. I though quinoa would be filling and I had an extra parsnip so here’s what I did….

You’ll need:

  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 onion
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large parsnip (or carrot), diced
  • Leftover beef, cubed (1 large steak or roast etc)
  • liquid smoke (optional)
  • spices –  parsley, oregano, red pepper flakes, pepper, celery salt (whatever you’d like)

In a medium pot I melted the butter and sauteed the onion then added the garlic and parsnip.

I added 1 can of beef broth plus two packets of beef bouillon and 3 cups of water (or you could just use 4 cups of beef broth).

Add beef and spices to your taste

Bring soup to a simmer and add 3/4 cups quinoa. Cover and simmer 15 mins. Uncover and keep heated on low until ready to serve.
