chicken soup with quinoa

My hubby wasn't feeling the greatest so I decided to make chicken soup. I got the idea here:  But I added to it. 
Chicken Soup with Quinoa
1 tab olive oil
1/2 onion, diced
6 carrots, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1/4 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed
6 cups good chicken stock
salt and pepper to taste
1  boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut up in bite sized pieces
1 14 ounce can petite diced tomatoes, drained
cup or 2 of water for cooking chicken in---adds more both to the soup
3 inch piece of fresh rosemary
1/2 teas dried thyme
1/2 teas crushed sage
1/4-1/2 teas celery seed
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 potato
handful of spaghetti noodles chopped
1. In a small pot set over low heat, cook the onions and carrots in about a tablespoon of olive oil. Cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the garlic and quinoa, and cook for about a minute.Meanwhile cook the chicken with the water and the seasonings (adding the potato).  Pour in chicken stock, add the tomatoes and the vegetables, and noodles-- raise the heat to medium, and simmer for about 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper to achieve the taste you want.
