Dock and quinoa soup

Diet times again. The forthcoming summer has a lot of requirements, one of them to look good. This is a light and tasty soup which makes you satiated with small amount of calories. Tasty and healthy. You can substitute spinach or Swiss chard for the dock. 

  • 5 bunches (about 50 leaves) of young dock leaves
  • 3 banana hot peppers
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 4 Tbsp light olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp quinoa
  • 3 cups of hot water
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp yogurt per serving
Heat olive oil in a soup pot and saute onion, garlic and banana peppers for 10-15 minutes until soft. Meanwhile remove the large stems of the dock. Wash well the leaves and slice them finely on a chopping board. Put leaves and quinoa into the pot, add the hot water, salt and pepper and let everything simmer for 15 minutes. Take soup from the stove and let cool. Serve cold with some yogurt.
