Gourgeous soup. Quinoa is amazingly healthy and can help you lose weight.
"I just made this and ate my first bowl and I love it! Great way to eat quinoa with extra protein! It is very thick so use more water if you want it more brothy. 2 cups of cooked chicken worked out to be exactly 2 chicken breats. Thanks for posting this recipe!"- Nutmeglet
