Homemade Chicken Quinoa Soup

Here’s another one of my Donloree recipes!  It’s become one of my standard lunch fares as I count down the last 7 weeks of my training.

I heart quinoa.  It’s pronounced keen-wah, not quin-no-uh…and if you ask for quin-no-uh at the grocery store, all you will get is a weird look from the person stocking shelves.


Such a fabulous ancient grain! Tasty and full of protein....why ever eat rice again?


  • 100 grams chicken, cubed and already cooked
  • 22 grams or 1/8 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 70 grams chopped carrots (1 large carrot)
  • 70 grams mushrooms (big, old handful)
  • 50 grams chopped onion (1 thin slice of a large onion)
  • 1.5 cups chicken broth
  • Pepper to taste
