Quinoa soup with beef
Serves: 8-10 people. Seven out of seven Downing family members enjoy this delicious soup.
First. Melt the butter over medium heat in soup pot. Make a flavor base by adding diced onions, minced garlic, diced tomatoes, achiote, cumin and pepper, cook until onions are soft.
Then. Add beef, mix until well coated with flavor base, cook for 5 minutes.
Then. Pour in water and increase the heat, bring to a boil.
Then. Lower heat to medium and cook until the meat is tender.
Then. Mix in potatoes, peas and cooked quinoa, raise heat and bring to a boil.
Then. Simmer for 25-30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
Then. Add the parsley, cilantro and salt.
Enjoy. Serve with avocado.
