“What does good in bed mean to me? When I’m sick and I stay home from school propped up with lots of pillows watching TV and my mom brings me soup – that’s good in bed.” — Brooke Shields
Another scrumptious recipe from Betty Goes Vegan, by Annie & Dan Shannon, page 62.
This is the quintessential, comforting “chicken” soup, made from Gardein Chick’n Scallopini, wild rice, carrots, celery, onions, peas, and spices. This certainly did the trick on some cold days and we will be making it again soon. This is so easy to prepare that even a sicky could make a big pot of it, eat some, and then get back in to bed for some more rest.
Wild Rice Facts: Wild rice are four species of grasses forming the genus Zizania, and the grain which can be harvested from them. The grain was historically gathered and eaten in both North America and China. Wild rice is not directly related to Asian rice although they are close cousins. The plants grow in shallow water in small lakes and slow-flowing streams; often, only the flowering head of wild rice rises above the water. The grain is eaten by dabbling ducks and other aquatic wildlife, as well as humans.
