Chicken & Quinoa Soup: A Divine Combination

Chicken Quinoa SoupThis recipe comes to the Kitchen from Patty Bojczuk of Rethinking Your Life. She calls it Chicken Quinoa Soup Divine, which is fitting, as she herself is a pretty divine human being. She’s also an expert at divining the inner meaning and motivation behind common human behaviour, which makes her kind of a handy person to know. Especially if you are interested in matters metaphysical. And who isn’t?

Plus, she makes a heavenly chicken soup.
