Spring may be in full glory on my little island, yet today it feels more like the fall. ‘It’s a day for soup!’  I thought, and I instantly searched my fridge to see what vegetables I had.  15 minutes later, with a hearty appetite and a little imagination I prepared a delish quinoa soup! It wasn’t long before a tangy aroma filled my kitchen:)
Here’ s a step by step to this easy, super-healthy, nutritional and asolutely yummy recipe:
 
Servings: 2
– add 3 cups of water in a pot and allow to boil
– sprinkle with herbal salt and dry parsley
– add: 1 finely chopped onion, 1 grated medium potato, 1/2 cup grated pumpkin (or any other vegetables to your liking)
– add 1/2 cup of quinoa
 
15 minutes later, your soup is ready!
Kali orexi (bon appétit)

About Mahi S

I was born on the island of Cyprus in 1971. For years, I lived the life of a nomad: I grew up in the Arab Gulf, finished high school in Cyprus, then went to the U.S. for five remarkable, life-changing years of study and work in public relations. With every change of home, I was confronted with the challenge of separation and the issue of identity, but ultimately the rewarding experience of interacting with people of different cultures has informed my life ever since. It inspired me to create an ideal setting wherever I found myself, to live meaningfully and use passion as the main ingredient in my life. I run to keep myself motivated and to fire the kind of creative thinking that keeps me balanced and content. But it’s also an ongoing challenge: since 1999, I have completed 17 half-marathons, which I try to run in a different city every time. In fact, running and travel are the two pillars of my life philosophy: “Travel is fascinating, whether it’s about a series of mesmerizing destinations or a journey within myself”. “Running keeps me sane, motivated and focused!” Right now, I am focusing on promoting my new book, ‘A squirrel in your kitchen’ an e-cookbook with quick, easy and delicious recipes (and anecdotes) from dearest friends around the world. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AYXN500. I am also hoping to experience the fascinating challenge of a full marathon in 2016; in Athens or New York. We’ll see!

  1. This is SOOOOOOO Fit to Inspire Mahi! Did you not use any bouillon in the soup – no flavor except parsley and salt? Amazing!
