Chicken, Vegetable And Quinoa Soup

Today’s dinner was little different instead of simple salad , I prepared chicken and quinoa soup, which was much filling, healthy and nutritious.

This main course soup is hearty, loaded with veggies, chicken and super healthy quinoa. So make a pot this weekend and enjoy it for lunch or dinner throughout the week.
