i made this soup last nite for chris since he was was terribly blah with the cold....this was last weekend. it was pretty tastey and i was looking forward to having it tonight after tearing down the display at the cherrywood art fair. that was the most charming little show and i met so many great local artists whose work i see regularly all over town...the show was so well run with a nice variety of work. a great way to end the show season.
add olive and garlic to large pot til golden. when the garlic starts turning add the mustard seeds til they pop. let seeds pop about a minute and then add the water and veggie stock cubes...bring stock to boil and add quinoa, lentils, peas and potatoes. let boil til tender and quinoa is transparent. add the coconut milk, ginger, swiss chard and remaining spices. then add a smidge of any of the spices or lemon juice to pump up the flavor....as this recipe is guesstimate of what i used... :O)
