Kale, Quinoa & Bean Soup

Why is it about this time of year that makes soup a favourite meal? Is it the weather? Or is it that I get lazy and the simplicity of a one pot meal is so appealing? 

Whatever is it, this kale, quinoa and bean soup is a winner. It is simple and inexpensive to make, has great flavour and is hearty yet healthy. Oh, and its also gluten free.

Enjoy :)
