  3. Red Beans and RiceRed Beans and Rice From Simply…Gluten Free

    My family’s favorite is Chicken and Rice. I put in one package of Lundberg variety rice (I try a new variety each time) Organic Chicken, your favorite cuts, (enough for your family) One carton 1qt. of either Trader Joe’s brand Free Range, Organic Chicken broth or Imagine Brand’s Organic Chicken Broth. One entire head of garlic, cloves individually peeled, whatever herb I feel like that day ( i.e. rosemary, tarragon, thyme or be creative,) and fresh ground pepper to taste. I put the lid on and let it cook on low for 6-8 hours. To keep it moister, pour on a can or carton of your favorite GF mushroom soup. I like Imagine brand’s Portabella Mushroom soup. Many times I will saute up mushrooms and throw them in as well. It always turns out delicious with all that sweet roast garlic flavor.
