The Make It Mindful judges fell hard for Tina M.’s bowl of big, bold flavors. You will, too! Her Hearty Southwestern Grain Soup is loaded with satisfying ingredients that play well together. She began with a rich vegetable stock and the slightly nutty-tasting quinoa, a protein-packed grain that adds nutritional strength. Then Tina didn’t hold back. She added our savory Mindful Beef Mushroom Burger, seasoned black beans, corn and a dash (or two!) of red pepper flakes. She finished up with a dollop of cool Roasted Garlic Basil Pesto and a splash of lime juice to provide a nice counterbalance to the soup’s spicy kick.
