Quinoa Black Bean Pumpkin Soup

When the weather is cold and wet nothing is better than a warm bowl of soup. I admit that I could eat soup just about everyday and be happy so I was eager to try this recipe when I ran across it here. It is full of healthy protein, fiber and phytonutrients… and it is very tasty too! I modified the recipe a bit when I cooked it– primarily to reduce sodium. I used dried beans that I cooked in the crock pot instead of canned beans– quick, easy, cheap and NO sodium. I also substituted pumpkin puree for the cubed pumpkin because I had it in my freezer. If you don’t have pumpkin, sweet potatoes would make a good substitute. I used low sodium vegetable broth and the resulting soup was very tasty and filling.
