Spinach and sausage soup

 I love experimenting with soup in the winter time - yummy, hot, one dish meals are awesome!

Today's experiment was super simple and tasty - only 5 ingredients! It was also gluten free and could work for a paleo diet.

1# sausage
1 medium onion
3/4# frozen chopped spinach
6 cups vegetable broth
2/3 c quinoa

 Chop onion. Over medium heat, brown sausage and onion a 6 qt pot until sausage is no longer pink. Add vegetable broth, bring to a simmer. Add quinoa and cook until quinoa is al dente (10-12 minutes). Add frozen spinach, bring soup back to a simmer. Remove from heat.


Note - you can substitute chicken broth for the vegetable broth if desired.
