Twice i have enjoyed the ready made soups. But today i began with the italian barley and grain soup mix. Then…i substituted fresh made chicken broth, added some of the roasted chicken pieces, fresh cherry tomatoes diced and then to the boiling liquid…jasmine rice. I added antica salina sea salt and wa lah! Thank you for the most wonderful beginning. Your ready made so convenient soup have made me believe i can actually cook! Thank you the kitchen sink.
