Sweet Potato, Quinoa, Bean, Spinach and Coconut Soup….YUM - March 18th, 2014

I bow to Andrea for posting it,  and offer her a heartfelt thank you because her dish warmed up the dreariest of days. You should check out what she has to offer in a bit…I have posted her website below. So…. Thank You Andrea. The soup is comforting, nutritious, filling and most of all delicious. Enjoy!
