Recipe type: lunch, dinner
Serves: 6
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups peeled, chopped carrots
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ cup Bob's Red Mill quinoa (can use rice)
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken*
  • 1 teaspoon chives, chopped
  1. In large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Saute onion, carrot and celery for 5 minutes to soften. Pour in chicken stock, thyme, salt, pepper and bay leaves. Bring to boil, pour in quinoa and reduce heat to simmer and cook 20 minutes or until tender. Stir in lemon juice, zest, chicken and chives. Serve hot.
