‘LIGHTENED’ CHICKEN ITALIAN WEDDING SOUP

‘LIGHTENED’ CHICKEN ITALIAN WEDDING SOUP

This dish is loosely inspired by Italian Wedding soup, but with a few ‘lighter’ swap-outs. If you’re not a fan of quinoa, play around with other grains and see what you like best! Farro or even a brown rice can easily be used instead.
