Super-Grain Soup with Watercress and Mushrooms
When cold and flu season hits, this warming Super-Grain Soup with Watercress and Mushrooms can serve as either prevention or cure. Packed to the gills with superfoods like peppery watercress, earthy mushrooms, and nutty quinoa, it'll be just what the doctor ordered.
Look for packages of "super-grains" at the store in the rice and grains section; they will contain a blend of quinoa, millet, and buckwheat. Alternatively, any variety of quinoa will work fine for this recipe. A variety pack of wild mushrooms, such as shiitake, cremini, and oyster, will give this soup a deeper flavor, but a single variety will work, too.
