Quinoa and Vegetable Soup

My little one was down with the cold and so while he was napping I thought of making a quick soup to make him feel better. I fished around the pantry and got my hands on Quinoa. I made a light and flavorful soup using quinoa and mixed veggies. Enjoy this easy and kid-friendly soup :)
