Chicken vegetable soup with quinoa

Submitted by: FDOODLES
Chicken vegetable soup with quinoa

Introduction

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.

    I just finished putting this together and it's very good. I did add more veggies (onion, celery, carrots) and I used Mrs Dash chicken grilling spice for an extra sodium free zip. Very fast and tasty. A wonderful way to add quinoa to your diet. - 11/3/08
