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!"

Good soup. Used the recipe as a base for my own adaptation. Thanks for sharing.

Delicious soup! I added fresh garlic with the veggies and a little garlic powder too. I also roasted the chicken breasts with olive oil, kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Yum!

Delicious soup! I roasted the chicken breasts in some olive oil, kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. The drippings added alot of flavor to the soup. Yum!

I make a lot of soups, but my husband said this was by far his favourite. Surprising considering it was so simple! Have already made a couple batches.

Loved it. Added garlic, diced cherry tomatoes and string beans. Wish I made a double batch...

May need more salt/pepper. Next time I will also a clove of garlic to the onion/carrot/celery mixture.
