I discovered this on a blog after realizing that I was having a problem tolerating rice products. I like it for all the vegetables...it is a new twist on chicken noodle soup! Because I have a difficult time following a recipes, mine did not turn out quite like it is suggested. I always toss in more of everything as if I am feeding an army! Also, I threw in the oat groats with the broth and cooked it while all the vegetables, which I use mostly frozen, so no chopping for me! Sadly, the bouillon had corn in it - so better luck next time for a corn free meal.
