Soup Sunday-Ginger Pork Quinoa Soup

Ginger Pork Quinoa Soup

It was 26 F here in Milwaukee this morning so it's still good weather for soup.  This soup packs from great nutrition from the spinach and quinoa.  This will be perfect after my long run today.  I have my final long run today before the Boston Marathon.  I don't feel ready yet, so maybe 18-20 miles today's of hills will help me get there. Hope you enjoy this soup!

1 tablespoon canola oil
4 ounces pork tenderloin, sliced into bite sized pieces
½ medium yellow onion, chopped
1 can sliced water chestnuts
5 cups vegetable broth
½ teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon chopped ginger
