Mixed Vegetable and Quinoa Soup /Quinoa Soup

Coming to the day 2 recipe under the theme guilt free indulgence,I am sharing you a healthy soup made with quinoa and mixed veggies.
Quinoa is a gluten free grain which has high protein content and low glycemic index also rich source of B complex vitamins.
I made this soup in Indian way and added some rice flakes along with quinoa to give a nice consistency to the soup.The soup is on the thicker side and so filling along with some toast.We relished this soup along with some multi grain toast for our dinner.Lets move on to the recipe....................
