  • 2 Tablespoons parsley, chopped

Take 1/4 cup of the roasted red peppers, slice into thin strips, and set aside.

Place the remaining red peppers in a blender along with the hummus and chicken stock. Blend until smooth.

Transfer the blended mix into a medium saucepan. Add the quinoa and chicken. Season with salt and pepper.

Bring everything to a boil.

Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with the slices of red pepper and chopped parsley.

Serve over the cooked quinoa
