Tortilla Soup

This my quick healthy version of tortilla soup. You can add less quinoa or more water to make it more soupy but I like to make it more hearty and this way it travels well.
3 cloves garlic minced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 lb zucchini, chopped (yum lots of zucchini!)
1/2 onion, chopped
4 carrots, chopped
1 28oz can diced tomatoes with juice
3 cups water
1 veggie bouillion cube
1 cup raw quinoa
1/2 bunch cilantro,minced
juice of 1 lime

Add garlic,carrots,onion and bell pepper to a large pot before turning on the stove.

 Turn to medium low and saute for 5 minutes. Add zucchini, can of tomatoes, water, bouillon cube and quinoa.
Turn to high and boil (I left mine uncovered) for 20 minutes. Add cilantro and lime. Enjoy!
