Chicken Soup is Good for the Soul… one of my favorite books and also a great sentiment. There’s nothing quite like a good bowl of savory soup to clear up the sinuses and help you to feel better… no matter if your physically ill or going through a tough time. Make a soup that’s gluten-free and vegetarian for optimum healing. My Mom used to say “this soup is jumping with vitamins” so every time I make a good savory gluten-free soup her words are the first thing that comes to mind as I sit down to eat. When I was a kid I think I truly thought the soup would heal any ill that came my way and so it probably did.
There is no substitute for the chicken in this Chick-un Rice and Vegetable Soup and I’m not in the habit for trying to substitute the flavor of any meat. Rather, I play with combination of ingredients that creates it’s unique savory flavor and in this case is both comforting and “jumping with vitamins”.
