  1. Rinse quinoa well with cold water. Place rinsed quinoa and water in pot (covered) and cook covered on medium-low heat for about 15 minutes until soft.
  2. While the quinoa is cooking, place the onions, garlic and vegetable oil in covered soup pot and sauté on medium heat for 5 to 8 minutes or until slightly caramelized.
  3. Add celery and carrots to the soup pot and cook an additional 5 minutes, stirring often.
  4. Add the bell pepper, courgette, aubergine, tomatoes, and one cup water or vegetable stock to soup pot. Stir in cumin, chilli powder, coriander, cayenne and oregano to the soup pot.
  5. Simmer covered for 10 to 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  6. Stir in cooked quinoa and salt to taste.  Top with coriander and grated cheese, if desired, and serve immediately.
