Happy New Year, Andreas!
I love that you're using quinoa in place of more traditional grains. Last time an Indian dish, this time Italian...I wonder what's next...

I think this is the first time I've seen a quinoa inspired minestrone. What a wonderful and healthy bowl of soup!

Awesome. I've made minestrone many times with pasta, rice, even brown rice, but never thought to use quinoa. Can't wait to try.
