I'm feeling a little under the weather, hence the lack of blogging over the past few days. I have also picked up D's sniffles that is not making me feel a happy bunny.
Other than a visit to the doctors this afternoon, I've been stuck indoors with the cat for company, and reading a fictional novel for a change, instead of my usual flicking through cookbooks, but my eyes have been a bit cloudy and hazy so the reading has been on and off. Then I hide my head under the blankets feeling a little sorry for myself. Oh I know it will pass, time of the year, we are all going to feel a little rough.
I made this Mixed Peppers, Chickpeas and Quinoa soup at the weekend before the sniffles grabbed me. I made it with peppers that had been bought originally for another dish, a Chilli Pot if you must know.
This recipe for the soup made a large batch that we are both still tucking in. It reheats beautifully. The quinoa swelled up into its translucent spiral shape. It made a nice change textually, that there was no need to serve a bread roll on the side. It was good to go.
I am sharing a warming bowl of this Mixed Peppers and Quinoa Soup with What I Ate Wednesday#143 hosted by Peas and Crayons; Deb of Kahakai Kitchen for this week’s Souper (Soup, Salad and Sammies) Sundays; and finally with Ricki at Diet, Dessert, Dogs for her Wellness Weekends 17-21 October.

Please note I'll be back later in the week to share the recipe.
