Quinoa Chicken Soup

 Quinoa Chicken Soup

It was one of those days-I needed a quick and easy soup for dinner and the rainy day had me jonsing for a classic chicken. I mixing it up a bit by using Quinoa, chickpeas, chicken breasts (instead of a whole one) and various seasonings (sea salt, tumeric and curry) that was pretty true to a standard chicken soup. Enjoy!

Quinoa Chicken Soup
6-8 cups of water
2-3 chicken breasts
1 whole leek, chopped up
2-3 carrots, chopped up
1 cup of Quinoa
1 yellow onion, diced
1-2 cups of chickpeas

1 tablespoon of garlic
bunch of fresh dill
bunch of fresh basil

pinch of sea salt
pinch of pepper
pinch of celery salt
pinch of tumeric
pinch of curry

Add water to a pot and start boiling the water. Cut up the onions, garlic, leeks and carrots and add them to the pot, along with the fresh dill and basil. Cut the chicken into one-inch squares and add to the pot. Cover and let cook for 20-30 minutes. Add the Quinoa, chickpeas and various seasonings (sea salt, pepper, celery salt, tumeric and curry). Taste to adjust. Let cook for another 15 minutes. Turn off the flame and enjoy! So easy!
