This soup was really delicious! I love how versatile quinoa is. I almost hesitated using two jalapeños, but I am glad I did because it added delicious flavor without being overwhelming. The cumin and cilantro also gave it great flavor. I also used an immersion blender to puree the soup a little, but not too much, so that it still retained some its original texture. It was perfect!

This vegetarian quinoa soup was really good. It had really delicious, authentic Mexican flavors with the jalapeño and cumin. It's perfect when you want something quick and easy. The pressure cooker makes quinoa in no time.

I used an immersion blender to puree the soup all the way. It had really good flavor, not too spicy. Going to make it again soon.

I really liked this quinoa soup. I used black beans, tomatoes, carrot, and celery, but left out the jalapeño. If you really like the flavor and spice of cumin, add a little extra. It's amazing!

Definitely recommend blending when it's finished. Lots of good flavor and easy to make. I sautéed garlic too, and deglazed the pot with chicken broth before adding the beans and other ingredients.

I changed things up a little because I don’t have a pressure cooker, and I only made one serving. But the combination of all the ingredients was reallyyy good!

This was delicious! I cut the ingredients in half and used jarred jalapeños instead of fresh and it came out phenomenal. I also blended half of the soup but left some of it unblended for texture. A squeeze of lime before serving added even more flavor.

My one-year-old loved this! I thought I had quinoa in the pantry, but alas I did not. So I used jasmine rice instead and was just as delicious. I will be making this again.

I added vegetable bullion powder since I didn’t have celery and blended it all together at the end. It was sublime. So filling, warming and easy!

Abby Sill says:

This was the first recipe we tried with our pressure cooker and it was delicious! We used green chiles instead of jalapeños, because neither my husband nor I are huge jalapeño lovers, and it was awesome. I worried a little that the carrots/celery might overwhelm the rest of the soup, but it didn’t with all that onion and tomato flavor. We marveled that this was a purely vegetarian dish. It’s that flavorful.

Very easy to make. I substituted sweet potato for the carrots; used 6 cloves of garlic; chicken broth instead of water and pickled jalapeños. The heat was perfect.

I forgot to buy black beans so I substituted red lentils instead which is a great alternative as well, high in fibre. This is a prefect simple, healthy, good meal for this cold weather. Thank you for sharing this recipe !
