Mediterranean Quinoa Topped Tomato & Artichoke Soup
"I use Bella Sun Luci products all the time so I went through the website and looked through it to see which products I would like to use. I also have been going through a Mediterranean salad phase, so I had those ingredients on hand. The soup idea popped in my head while I was in the zone and to my surprise by the time I was done I realized I really was happy with my recipe and photo! I guess I work well under pressure! "
