Oh, how I love comfort food, and now that fall has arrived, it’s all I want to eat. Nothing says comfort like a big pot of hearty stew, so that’s just what I fixed for dinner. Pearled Sorghum is part of Hodgson Mill’s new line of whole grain products, so I decided to give it a try in my latest comfort food dish. Along with roast chicken, chorizo sausage, garlic, onions, carrots, and black beans, pearled sorghum adds flavor (slightly nutty) and thickens the stew much like rice, but with more nutritional value.

Minestrone means “big soup” in Italian and after a bowl of Minestrone with Gluten Free Elbows and Bacon, you’ll know why. Made with onion, garlic, corn, zucchini, tomatoes, beans, Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Brown Rice Elbows with Golden Milled Flax Seed and fresh basil, this soup is big, flavorful and filling. Add a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and smoky bacon on top and minestrone will likely take on the meaning, “my favorite soup,” before you reach the bottom of the bowl. Read More »

This soup is beautiful. I don’t think there is another word for it. Clean, fresh, refreshing . . . those come close. I think it’s the combination of the aromatic, zingy ginger and the gentle but persistent heat of the chili flakes and green onions butting up against the fresh veggies and cilantro, the substantial Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Egg Noodles, and lots of good-quality vegetable broth. The slices of sirloin steak on top are an enticing contrast, more of a tasty garnish than the main event. I think if you took any one piece of the equation away, it might all fall apart.
I know it might seem a little odd to use egg noodles in this soup; maybe you were expecting rice noodles, like a vietnamese pho. But I think white rice noodles are just filler. The combination of whole wheat and a touch of egg add just the right amount of body to the soup, which doesn’t otherwise have a lot of fat. I love biting into the soft noodles along with a slightly crisp carrot or slice of squash. These noodles are just as good in this slightly exotic dish as they are in a comforting chicken noodle soup.

This soup is entirely too delicious for the amount of effort it requires. I’m starting to think anything, cooked slowly until it’s falling apart, might be magical. Here, the rich flavors of the chicken, the bright flowery thyme, the vibrant kale and carrots, and hearty Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Egg Noodles combine to make something much, much better than the sum of its parts. It’s warming, and comforting, and still light and fresh, which is nice when I’m so overloaded on heavy winter foods. Read More »
