Allergy free chicken noodle soup is very similar to a traditional chicken noodle soup recipe with just a couple of substitutes to make it "safe".
And that's a good thing because it is thought by grandmas and scientists alike that chicken noodle soup has medicinal properties for curing the common cold.
Whether it's the vitamin and mineral packed vegetables, the hydrating broth, the protein filled chicken or simply the placebo effect, it seems to do a body good.
Find a bag of your favorite gluten free noodles (we like Tinkyada brown rice pasta) and wheat/gluten free broth and you're ready to make a "safe" version of the classic soup. Use whatever variety of frozen (or fresh) vegetables that you like.
If you're allergic to poultry, try using vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and add a can of pinto or great northern beans in place of chicken for some protein.
