For the food-allergic set; tasty even for the regular guy. My husband and four year old (who hates everything) really liked these, as did I. You can serve these with a side of grated cheese for those who are able to have it. This sounds a little odd when you are following the directions, but it turns out amazing, I promise.

Very easy and came together quickly. My very, very picky 3 year old gobbled it down and had seconds - woah!! I think the chicken stock used may be why this didn't turn out to be 5 stars. Will try different brand next time. Still very good.

- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1⁄2 cup water
