Now that the weather is turning cold, I’ve been craving soup. A lot of premade soups are not gluten free as they have noodles or barely or use wheat flour to thicken them. So I’ve started making my own.
I cut up any kind of squash into cubes and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Then I roast it in the oven at 425 degrees till it is cooked through. he timing depends on how big the pieces are. Meanwhile, I soften some sliced onion on top of the stove in a small bit of oil. Once this is all done and cooled, I throw it all into the blender and let it go. (If you don’t let it cool, it could spray all over the place.) I add chicken or vegetable stock to thin it out to my liking.
I usually use stock from a carton, but recently have found a new product at The Italian Center Shop. It’s called Better Than Bouillion. I buy the organic kinds because some of the non-organic, contain barley so you have to read the ingredients carefully. I use the chicken flavor and it has a lot more taste than the cartons. You could also make soup the same way with tomatoes, red peppers, leeks, or even cauliflower.
Once I'm done, I add my own rice or rice noodles & vegetables and voila! Yum!
