Quinoa and Carrot Top Soup

Yes, I know it is summer and soup is the last thing you want to make.  That's okay.  I am going to share it anyway and you can store it away in your memory bank until the next time you get carrots with the tops on and have no idea how to use them.  You'll thank me then!

This is one of the easiest soups to make.  First, saute carrots and onions in butter or olive oil.  If you have any other veggies (like celery!), add it in.
Then, add in carrot tops and let them suck up the buttery goodness.
Throw rinsed/soaked uncooked quinoa on top.
Fill the rest of the pot with chicken broth and let it cook down.  Serve over tasty bread (sourdough?) and top with cheese!
