Slow-Cooker Vegetable, Bean & Quinoa Soup

As promised, I'm bringing you another meatless recipe for Meatless Mondays! This time around, I'm sharing one of my favorite soups to throw together quickly in my crock pot - it's a total cinch to make. I combine vegetables, beans and quinoa and let it simmer slowly all day long. The beans and quinoa add extra protein to this very healthy dish.

Slow-Cooker Vegetable, Bean & Quinoa Soup

4 cups vegetable broth
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cups mixed vegetables, chopped (fresh or frozen works)
1 can white beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup quinoa
1 bay leaf
1 tsp thyme
1 can diced tomatoes
salt & pepper


Add all of the ingredients into the crock pot. Simmer for 4-6 hours, or until cooked. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
