Have you started shopping? Is your house all decked out for Christmas? I’m proud to say have my Christmas tree up and decorated. Typically I don’t get around to it until this weekend or the next. I’ve been trying to get everything thing set for the holidays. I find myself scrambling for dinners along the way. So many things to do…
My easy solution is soup. Now that’s it cold in Wisconsin, hot soup is always welcome at the table. Pair it with your favorite allergy safe bread and you have a filling meal. The a great thing about soup is, it doesn’t need to take all day. I be honest, this soup is good but it’s not gourmet. It is free of the top 8 allergens though, and there’s usually enough for two meals. Win-win!
One shortcut I use a lot, is rotisserie chicken. Just be sure to check the ingredients label. Some stores will label with a “gluten free” sticker but many don’t. The seasoning to look out for are ones with malted barley. Costco’s chickens are gluten free. Be sure to check your local grocery store’s ingredients. One of our grocery stores contains malt flavoring so we don’t buy it. Malt is typically derived from wheat and is the primary sweetener in many cereals. This is the reason why regular Rice Krispies are not gluten free.
Store bought broths can also contain gluten so make sure to read labels. Costco’s chicken stock and many others are gluten free but not necessarily labeled.
