New recipe

Hubby and I enjoyed this soup recipe I made last week while the snow was flying. Several people have asked me to post it. Enjoy!

Beef, Potato and Quinoa Soup

    2 tsp olive oil
    6-7 scallions, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tomato, diced
    1 tsp cumin
    1/2 tsp Badia Sazon with Annato (I've never heard of this and will use it another time)
    1/2 lb beef, cubed into small bite size pieces (I used beef tenderloin)
    5 cups water
    beef bullion
    1 carrot, peeled and sliced
    2 tbsp yellow bell pepper, diced
    2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
    1 cup cooked quinoa
    6 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
    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, sazon with achiote, 1/4 cup cilantro and cook another 2 minutes. Add beef, water, bullion, 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. Add remaining chopped cilantro and serve.
