Turkey Empanadas with Quinoa Chicken Soup


One of my favorite dinner on cold days. Turkey Empanadas (Empanaditas de Pavo) and Quinoa Soup ( Sopita de Quinoa). Easy and delicious!!

Let's begin with the Quinoa Soup ( 40 minutes preparation time)
Chopped onion and Garlic about medium size onion and 3 cloves of garlic.
In a large pot add one table spoon of olive oil, add garlic and 1 full table spoon of cumin. Cook it for 3 minutes in high.

Add the chicken breast cut it in cubes. Add salt, pepper, oregano and parsley.

I had some of our garden zucchini and yellow banana squash that I froze. Add the 3 large potatoes ( red potatoes will be great too) zucchini and yellow banana squash. Add 1/2 cup of cooking wine.

8 cups of water with 2 tablespoon of chicken bouillon or you can also add 4 cans of chicken stock.

Add one cup of the delicious Quinoa and let it cook for 30 minutes or more.
