This soup has an incredible texture and flavour. It is a powerhouse meal and freezes beautifully. Wakame is dried seaweed. I buy it in a health food store.

Dr. Jodi’s Clean Eating Notes:
This gluten-free “pseudograin” is in the same family as spinach, chard, and beets — not in the wheat or grain family. The little seeds are packed with fibre and protein, along with the anti-inflammatory antioxidants. Quinoa is also a compete protein – giving you all the essential amino acids our body needs to replenish cellular function.
