If you love quinoa (buy quinoa here) and vegetarian quinoa soup recipes, you will love this quinoa soup vegetarian recipe too which is made with healthy quinoa which is full of fibers and protein.
Another healthy vegan soup recipe I have is yummy vegan spinach soup recipe.
The soup is flavored with garlic powder and salt and also we used fresh tomatoes to make this soup, so this is a quinoa tomato soup recipe for weight loss as well.
This quinoa soup is perfect for a low calorie vegetarian/vegan lunch or dinner.
Quinoa is a wonderful vegetarian source of protein which vegetarians and vegans can include in their diet and so this vegetarian quinoa soup is healthy & rich with healthy protein.
Quinoa helps you feel fuller and so you don’t feel hungry, which will help you if you are trying to lose weight healthy on a vegetarian diet.
I believe the key to vegetarian weight loss recipes is to use a healthy protein and vegetables with lots of fibers but which have fewer calories.
The fibers and protein will help you feel fuller and helps you reduce the use of carbohydrates. Staying away from sugar (especially white sugar) and unhealthy fats is important in weight loss.
However, personally I do not mind indulging in occasional treats like desserts but those treats should not become a daily part of diet.
So here is how you can make this healthy quinoa soup for weight loss following this quinoa soup vegetarian recipe.
Quinoa Soup Vegetarian Recipe Below
Quinoa Soup Vegetarian Recipe
- 1 cup Quinoa
- 4 small Tomatoes
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder

- 2 cups water for cooking quinoa

- Add the 2 cups of water and quinoa in a medium sized pot or pan and bring the mixture to a boil.
- When the mixture starts boiling, stir the contents and cover the pan with a lid.

- Once the mixture starts boiling, reduce the heat and cover the pan with the lid and cook for about 6 minutes or until the tomatoes are very well cooked and soft.
- After 6 minutes, see if the tomatoes are cooked and blended well with the quinoa leaving a small orange hint to the quinoa.
- Add more water if desired so as to reach the desired soup consistency. Healthy vegetarian/vegan quinoa soup is ready to serve
