    Delicious as it Looks's Note:

    This delicious and healthy chicken soup has a tangy bonus: lemon juice. It's also very easy to put together and makes a big batch. I like to freeze in individual containers for a quick lunch.

      Delicious! And no, you don't need to add any (or at least not much) salt, because the lemon juice takes care of everything. We used the better part of a roasted chicken, which we put in only a few minutes prior to adding the spinach so that it would be warmed. We're delighted to have leftovers.

      This recipe was our first use of quinoa. It was FABULOUS! It was warm and filling for the winter, but also light and a tang of lemon, making it great for a spring day. I try to be as healthy as possible, while also meeting my husbands need for "non gross food". He LOVED this soup. He went back for thirds. Even my son of 11 months old devoured the chunks. <br/><br/>We made a few changes to the recipe. We cut the lemon juice in half and used kale instead of spinach (because it was what we had in our fridge).
