Chicken, Ham, & Quinoa Soup
















I love soup this time of year, don't you? When the weather gets a bit chilly outside and snow starts to cover the ground, there really is nothing better than a warm, hearty bowl of your favorite soup!

Imagine, if you will, the perfect soup recipe. What would it include? First off, it has to have meat. No soup is complete without a hearty portion of meat. Second, it has to be packed with delicious veggies. Third, it has to have a thick, creamy broth that brings it all together, wouldn't you agree? But what about a fourth ingredient? A secret surprise that only you know about. What would that ingredient be?

How about quinoa? Yes, you heard me right, quinoa in soup! Sounds crazy? It's actually pretty good, and very healthy too. Let me show you how. Using our amazing Organic Quinoa, combined with our Freeze Dried Chicken and Ham, we've create a warm, hearty, and mouth watering soup that you can't pass up!
