US|METRIC
  • 1 gallon chicken stock (or broth, Homemade is awesome. Low-sodium cartons are great. Bouillon as only a very last resort)
  • 2 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 7 cloves garlic (minced, or use a garlic press. 4 will be used for one step, 3 for the other step.)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves (loosely packed)
  • 3 jalapeño chiles (seeded, stemmed and diced)
  • 340 grams quinoa (rinsed and drained in a wire mesh strainer, more quinoa will give you more of a stew. I used 1.5 cups in the recipe pictured at top and you can see there's not a lot of broth)
  • 3 stalks celery (diced)
  • 5 green onions (white and green parts, sliced)
  • 1/2 pound spinach (a whole bag baby spinach is perfect)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 lime
