30 Minute Tomato Quinoa Soup - Way better than a can! Complete Vegan or Vegetarian meal!/ Running in a Skirt

Hi friends!

It’s full on soup season in my house.  I’m a big fan of making easy and delicious homemade soup this time of year.  Soup out of a can just doesn’t compare to something you’ve created yourself.  I love soup for a weekday meal because it reheats well, is packed with healthy clean food and is usually really easy to make.  This 30 Minute Tomato Quinoa Soup is no exception.

Sure, you can bust out a can of soup… but would it look and taste like this?  Not to mention you can control the ingredients that way!

Tomato Quinoa Soup-9-1

The quinoa is an easy addition that makes the soup alone a balanced meal.

Including everything there are only ten ingredients in this soup, so it can be on your table in a snap.  If you have more time, let it simmer on the stove for even more flavor.

Tomato Quinoa Soup-16-3 (1)

To get the smooth tomato flavor use an immersion blender.  I actually use an immersion blender all the time to make quick soups!  I have this one that is less than twenty bucks.

Using this kitchen tool is so much easier than transferring the hot soup into a blender.  You can drop this tool right into the soup!  It’s one of my favorite kitchen gadgets.

    Yum, another great recipe to share today! Love tomato soup and I’ve recently discovered my love for the immersion blender. Thanks again for linking up with Annmarie and me for Meatless Mondays!

      Thanks Rachel! The immersion blender is one of my favorite tools!

    Ooh! This looks tasty! I love anything quinoa so I’m going to have to try this soon. The weather here just got much cooler so this is on my to-make this for the week.

    OMG. This looks so good! It’s never occurred to me to put quinoa in tomato soup

    I’m not the biggest soup fan, but I think this recipe alone may have converted me! It looks delicious. I love the ingredient list as well. I wonder if Joshua would be into it since it does contain quinoa.. which he somehow hates. Silly man!

      Thanks Jesse! My hubby has quinoa issues too. He’ll eat it, but gets a little grumpy about it.

    Thanks for linking up to Foodie Friday! I love using the immersion blender for soups 🙂 it completely heightens the texture!

    I love my imersion blender too. That and my bagel guillotine- use them fairly often.

      My parents had one of those– I forgot how useful that is!

    This looks so good!! I don’t have an immersion blender but I could probably use my vitamix!! Definitely trying as soon as it gets a little cooler!!

    Yesss this is so simple!! I love tomato soup this time of year! Perfect for chilly nights!

      Thanks Sam! Simple flavors are the best sometimes!

    This sounds so yummy! I have never thought to add quinoa to soup before.

    This looks amazing! I know if I make it, mine won’t look quite as pretty:)
    Homemade soups are the best! My favorite homemade soup is a toss up, I really love this mexican soup our family makes, and the other one is a chicken cream, (I know you probably cringe to it, being Vegan) but I like it, I just don’t eat it often because it’s not very healthy it has a lot of cream cheese in it:(
    Thanks for sharing, I’ll have to hang onto this one!

    • JulieWunder September 25, 2015 at 4:43 pm - Reply

      I’m actually a pescatarian (vegetarian who eats seafood) with a serious cheese addiction 🙂 So other than the chicken, that sounds tasty! Have a great weekend!

    I make a Olive Garden copycat tuscana soup, it is better than their’s. I love my Kitchenaid Mixer. I have had it forever. I love soups they are such a great dinner and bonus: usually there are leftovers..thanks for the recipe.

    • JulieWunder September 25, 2015 at 4:39 pm - Reply

      Oh yum!! I bet that’s amazing. I love the leftovers too.

    I love soups, especially in the fall and winter months! I’ve actually never made a tomato soup before. Can you believe it? And I don’t have an immersion blender. Both of those things need to change ASAP!

    • JulieWunder September 25, 2015 at 4:38 pm - Reply

      It’s sooooo easy and tastes way better than the can! You can put it in a big blender, but it’s a pain!

    I must admit, I’ve got a hand blender and it has not been that good to me. Though it is super cute! I think maybe I just need more time with it!

    • JulieWunder September 25, 2015 at 4:38 pm - Reply

      Haha! What happened????? Did you lift it out of the soup?

  20. Sarah @ Sweet Miles September 24, 2015 at 11:27 am - Reply

    Holy moly this soup looks delish!!! I LOVE a good tomato soup in the fall and this one looks like it would tasty might fine alongside my favorite grilled cheese!

    • JulieWunder September 25, 2015 at 4:37 pm - Reply

      Mmmm…. You can’t go wrong with that combo!

  21. Jamie September 24, 2015 at 10:01 am - Reply

    So yummy. I love the idea of adding quinoa for more staying power. I love carrot ginger soup, but pair some tomato soup with a grilled cheese and you have my favorite childhood meal! 🙂

    • JulieWunder September 25, 2015 at 4:37 pm - Reply

      Carrot ginger sounds amazing! I need to make that one next! Tomato soup and grilled cheese is still a legit dinner in our house 🙂

  22. Andrea B. September 24, 2015 at 9:24 am - Reply

    This looks really good.

    I can’t have quinoa right now (Whole30) but when I can maybe I’ll give it a try.

    Also sharing w. my brother, the quinoa expert! And pinning to my quinoa board. That word starts to look funny if you type it enough. 😉

    I’m all about the delicious soups in the fall and winter! <3 This looks awesome, and yay for quinoa! :D!!

    This is totally random, butttt are you by chance free on November 7th or 8th-ish? I'm going to be in NC for interviews on the 6th and 9th, and thought it'd be fun to check out some of Asheville over the weekend! 😛

    • JulieWunder September 25, 2015 at 4:35 pm - Reply

      Thanks!! I’m not 100% sure– there is a possible trip that weekend but send me an e-mail closer to time and hopefully we can meet up!

    Omg this looks delicious and so festive for fall! I just got my hubby into quinoa — he had never really tried it before. Finding interesting ways to incorporate it into meals is a mission I’m on right now. Plus, tomato soup is so comforting and wonderful. Beautiful pictures! 🙂

    • JulieWunder September 25, 2015 at 4:32 pm - Reply

      Thanks Erin! My hubby tolerates it. It was much easier at the beginning of the Sam’s size bag I bought 🙂

    This sounds amazing! I love tomato soup and soup in general. It’s so filling! As soon as it cools off in Florida I’ll be making this. Hopefully sooner rather than later…

  26. Tomato soup is my all time fave! Bring on soup season

    I agree soups are great especially when they are homemade.
    They reheat well and you can change up what you eat with the soup.
