Here's an easy soup recipe I adore:

1 (14.5 oz) can vegetable broth
1/2 c quinoa, rinsed and drained
1 3/4 c water
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 c frozen or fresh corn kernels
1 1/2 Tbsp chopped parsley or cilantro
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice

Place broth, quinoa, water, cayenne and garlic in a small soup pot and
bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook 10 minutes. Add corn
kernels and cook 3 minutes. Add parsley or cilantro and cook for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and stir in the lime juice. Serve hot or cold.
