Quinoa~Kale Soup

I know some people find Quinoa intimidating to make,,,,,but with all of the health benefits that exist in it I think it is a must try for everyone,,,,,And adding it to this soup can be an easy way to try it!,,Just some of the health benefits of it are,,,High in magnesium, fiber and phosphorus,,,,heart healthy fats,,,gluten free, high in protein and antioxidants and anti inflammatory properties,,,and I could go on and on!,,,So why not give it a try!,,,Here is what I did,,,Enjoy!

2 T olive oil
1 small onion (diced)
3 celery ribs (diced)
8 Cups Chicken Broth
2 Cups Chicken Breast (cooked and diced, I use Rotisserie)

3/4 Cup of dry Quinoa
1/2 t dry ground thyme
