Recipe w/Chicken, Kale, & Quinoa: Tuscan Chicken Soup

So I was watching "The Kitchen" the other day on the Food Network and they mentioned that the top three search words on their site are:

  • chicken
  • kale
  • quinoa
These are currently the most popular foods that people want to cook with. Well, I've got you covered with this new Tuscan Chicken Soup, because it has all three in one recipe! I use kale and quinoa all the time, and have round-up posts for both: Kale here. Quinoa here. And they both happen to be superfoods in my new cookbook as well! 

Introducing Tuscan Chicken Soup:

This hearty Italian soup is packed with protein and over a full day's worth of vitamins C, A, & K!

On its own or served with provolone/parmesan grilled cheese, this meal is sure to please everyone at the table.
