Beef, Potato and Quinoa Soup by Nutmeg Nanny

Soup season….don’t you love it?  I seriously cannot get enough of the stuff.  This beef potato and quinoa soup recipe came from the amazing blog, Skinny Taste.  Have you ever been there? I suggest you take a look. She has plenty of amazing and delicious recipes.  Plus all of her recipes include Weight Watcher point values.  This makes making dinner super easy and convenient.

Now onto the soup.  This recipe includes one of my favorite health foods, quinoa.  Which while researching I found out is actually a seed (not a grain) and is related to beets, spinach and tumbleweed.  It is also gluten free and very high in protein.  Perfect for anyone looking for a nice substitution to rice, couscous or potatoes.

Beef, Potato and Quinoa Soup

6-7 scallions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tomato, diced
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/2 pound beef, cubed into small bite size pieces (I used skillet steak, which is a thin credit card size steak - trimmed of all fat)
1 1/2 containers beef stock (48oz)
1 carrot - peeled and sliced
2 tablespoon green bell pepper - diced
2 medium potatoes - peeled and cubed
1 cup cooked quinoa
salt and pepper to taste

Saute oil in a large pot, add scallions and garlic and sauté until soft over medium heat, about 3 minutes. Add tomato, cumin, paprika, 1/4 cup parsley and cook another 2 minutes. Add beef, beef stock, carrot, bell pepper, salt and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on low about 1-1/2 hours, until meat is tender.

Add potato and cooked quinoa and cook an additional 25 minutes.
