This recipe for Chicken and Wild Rice Soup is so creamy I had to call it Extra Creamy. It is so easy to make, and your family is sure to want seconds.
In our neck of the woods January has been pretty mild, and I am not complaining one bit. A day without snow is a day closer to spring. But every now and then there has been a drop in the temperatures and that calls for soup. A good thick soup that will stick to your ribs. One that goes well with a nice warm roll. And besides the recipe I was also going to share a little about BFree Foods Bread. We are a food allergy family, so whenever I can find products that are made in allergy free facilities I am always eager to try them and share.
While BFree Foods are labeled as Wheat and Gluten Free they are also egg and dairy free. We found the taste and texture to be very pleasing and not dry at all. It's great to know there are tasty options out there for those with food allergies. BFree Foods makes wraps, buns, bread, rolls and bagels in white and brown seeded flavors. It can be found at Meijer stores.
