Late-Winter Soup With Turkey And Quinoa

Quinoa, The Super Food

Quinoa is a seed. It's high in protein, but not only that, it's a complete protein, which means it also contains a balanced set of essential amino acids. It's also high in iron, dietary fiber, and it's gluten-free. You can sprout the stuff, too, and unlike the 12 hours is takes to sprout wheat, it only takes quinoa 2-4 hours to grow its tendrils.

Just call quinoa super food!

Cook it with garlic, olive oil, and salt and pepper to get some extra taste. It's tasty served in a salad, or add it as some stuffing in omelets or peppers.

Pot 'O Leftovers

We like to think of this recipe as a big pot of leftovers. I shredded some smoked turkey and added veggies from the root cellar – carrots, collard green, leeks, turnips and parsnips.

Kumquats add some color and a zing of citrus. Their bitterness pair well with the smokiness of the turkey.
