This was excellent! It is very good even without the quinoa and topping.

I just made this last evening and my husband said this was some of the best soup I’ve made yet – and he has some tried and true favorites in the recipe collection! I made this as written and it was absolutely delicious as is – I did decide to add some curry and seasoned sea salt just to kick it up a bit. It doesn’t need a thing more than the salt & pepper to taste; but I do like the fact that I can easily change up the seasonings if I want to without losing the roasted sweet potato & vegetable flavors. Will most definitely be making this one again and again (& I’ll probably have to double the recipe because it was such a hit)! Thanks for a great new soup to add to my collection :)

This is a fantastic soup. It is easy and so delicious. My partner said it is one of the best things I’ve ever cooked for him in 7 years! Thanks so much. It’s wonderful to have a soup that is flavorful on its own, without over seasoning. You really get to taste the vegetables. Just wonderful.

This soup is so delicious and surprisingly filling thanks to the quinoa! I wanted to go back for more but was too full. I agree that the bread crumb/parmesan topping is vital. It really brings all the flavors together and adds a lovely savory flair. Yum. Oh.
