The chicken soup was really good. I snuck in some kombu (kelp) for all its nutrients and some astragalus root of course for its immune boost with all the usual chix soup suspects as well. After going gluten free I've had to contend with rice pasta. Now, I'm an Italian girl and I used to be quite a snob about pasta. Rice pasta took a whole lot of getting used to. It wasn't until I found 'tinkyada' g.f. pasta that I thought I could do this at all. For the soup last night I tried mrs. leeper's corn pasta elbows just for something different. It wasn't that bad. I noticed at the health food store there's quinoa pasta, too. Out of all the g.f. grains that has the most fiber, calcium and protein. All that I need. I'll have to try that next!
