NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 cups roughly chopped carrots
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, plus more for topping
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 quart fat-free low-sodium chicken broth
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli florets
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken (white meat only), skin removed
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat sour cream
Directions
  • Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery, carrots and Cajun seasoning and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are slightly soft, about 4 minutes.

  • Stir in the quinoa, then add the chicken broth, 3 cups water, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Partially cover and bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium and cook until the quinoa starts to soften, about 12 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook, uncovered, until just tender, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken and stir to warm through. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Ladle the soup into bowls. Top with the sour cream and Cajun seasoning to taste.
