Chicken & Quinoa Soup ~ E

Comfort food is a must for this girl. I’m so excited to share this incredibly delicious bowl of soup with you. Perfect for lunch or dinner. Or if you’re sick it’s an awesome alternative to chicken and noodle soup. Quinoa (when soaked in water the night before) is so soft and tasty! Plus it has MANY health benefits. Love it.
