Crockpot Chicken and Quinoa

We had a yummy crockpot soup for dinner recently. It's called Crockpot Chicken and Quinoa soup. I found the recipe over at The Nourishing Gourmet. The recipe is super simple and delicious!! It was a chilly day outside and this was just the thing needed to warm you up.

I had never cooked with quinoa before and was a little nervous about it. The end result reminded me of chicken and brown rice soup- homey and good for you.

NOTE about the recipe- it calls for using 1/2 to 3/4 cup of white wine. We don't use or drink alcohol, so I just used the same amount of chicken stock.

I will have to try this. I have only cooked quinoa once and it was good.

Mrs. U,

Your picture is so beautiful! I am so glad that my recipe turned out for you! Somebody was asking me how many one recipe would serve, how many did it serve in your family? I have a hard time figuring out serving sizes because I am a nursing mother and eat a lot right now!

Thank you, Kimi! The picture is beautiful because the FOOD is beautiful!! I love a happy bowl of soup! YUM!!!

I think we probably got between 6 and 8 servings out of it. I didn't count. Mr. U and Joshua had seconds. Or maybe it was thirds. :)
