Instructions
  1. You can easily create this recipe on a Stovetop or in an Instapot.
For the Stovetop
  1. Bring water to a boil.
  2. Add add ingredients to the boiling water (save quinoa if using this option).
  3. Leave the heat up until the mixture begins to boil again and then reduce to a simmer.
  4. Cover and let simmer for 25 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and serve in a mug garnished with fresh Italian parsley. If opting to boost the protein by adding quinoa scoop 1/4 cup on top of each serving and enjoy!
  6. Refrigerate left-overs for use for up to 7 days. Freeze if you need to save for a later date!
For the Instapot
  1. Place all ingredients into the pot.
  2. Set for chili and allow to seal and start cooking under pressure.
  3. When the timer beeps, let count up for 10 minutes.
  4. Manually vent and remove the soup from the Instapot.
  5. Serve warm garnished with fresh Italian parsley or topped with the optional quinoa.
  6. Follow the same storage instructions as the Stovetop version.
