Tomato, Basil Chicken & Quinoa Instant Pot Soup Recipe
Start with a combination of what you have on hand! I had rotisserie chicken, canned tomatoes, onions, spices, basil paste and chicken broth. If I had extra spinach on hand, I would have thrown that in as well!
Cook the soup on using the "soup" function for seven minutes. If your meat is not cooked (mine was) you will need to adjust. Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes and then use the release valve for the remainder.

How can you make this without an insta-pot? Can it be done in the crockpot
I would think so! I would just wait to add the quinoa to the very end and I would add it cooked.
