Note: Clean and chop each vegetable after the one before goes into the pot mixing everything together and seasoning each vegetable with salt.

Heat olive oil in a deep soup pot on medium heat. Add the vegetables in this order: onions, carrots, squash, leeks and garlic. Add the stock and water and bring to boil.  When the vegetables are soft, turn off the flame. Using an immersion blender, blend until completely smooth.

In a small pot, cook the quinoa. Turn the flame back on and dd the lima beans and corn, cooking until tender. Add in the quinoa. Stir well. Serve hot and enjoy!
