Lemony Chicken Florentine Soup with Quinoa

I have been basically doing nothing but eating soup and listening to Christmas music for the better part of a month.   I have about a dozen Christmas playlists on Amazon music right now.

Coffeehouse Christmas

Traditional Christmas Carols

Kids Christmas music ( gotta love that hippopotamus song!)

Acapella Christmas music

Instrumental Christmas music.

And yes my husband is a good sport about it all, and my kids have not yet started complaining.

I have meant to make this Chicken Florentine Soup for a while now.  And just so you know, I keep a post-it on my desktop computer with a HUGE list of recipes that I want to try out.  I probably will never get through all of them,  which is why I am here in the first place.

So here we are again, another week another soup in my Instant Pot.

Here is a little video I put together for you!

 

This soup contains super simple and healthy ingredients that I usually keep around.

Spinach

Chicken

Carrots

Celery

Quinoa

Lemon juice

This soup is super filling, but is so good for you! I have gotten into making big batches of soup lately, the leftovers make excellent lunches!

I ate this for lunch for three straight days.  I added a little cheese on top on the last day.   I think the lemon juice really makes this soup.   I love cooking with lemon juice and it always adds that perfect something to so many dinners that I make.
