Introductory quinoa recipe. It's not exactly a side item, but it's not vegetarian either. And it's poultry solely by virtue of the chicken broth... so here it sits, in the side items section.

Chicken vegetable soup with quinoa
Very Good 4.3/5
(7 ratings)

The quinoa adds a nutty flavor to this simple soup made from packaged, fresh and frozen ingredients.

***UPDATE*** When I was packaging up my leftovers, I realized that this only makes 11 servings, not 13. I have changed the info so it is more accurate now.

This grain, Quinoa is found usually in health food sections of the grocery store. It has a great texture and is very good for you. They say you can use this grain in place of brown or white rice.

My family loved this recipe and so did my SIL who is really a picky eater. They never new it was good for you.
