Gluten Free Egg Soup

Seeing as my son has Celiac Disease and we have a bunch of chickens (and an overabundance of eggs) I was trying to come up with a recipe that uses the eggs, is gluten free and that everyone would like. In doing so, I came up with this! It is different from the normal egg drop soup because I add more stuff.

5 eggs (beaten)
2 cups cooked rice
1 large onion diced
minced garlic
olive oil
*1 TBS gf bullion paste
*15 ounces water
2 heaping TBS Parmesan cheese

** The *'s can be replaced with 1 14.5 can of gf chicken stock if you'd like.

In a pot, heat olive oil. Once it is heated up, add diced onions and minced garlic. Here I add black pepper and some savory chicken seasoning (garlic, sweet pepper blend). Once onions break down, add the bullion paste, stir and then add the 15 ounces of water. Bring to a rolling boil. Stir in the beaten eggs. Turn off heat immediately. The hot soup will cook the eggs on it's own. Stir in the 2 cups of cooked rice. Stir in the 2 heaping TBS of Parmesan cheese.

There ya go! It is a great "sick day" soup. My kids like it any day, though! :)

Behold the Beauty ....

A wonderful friend of mine dyed and handspun this beautiful yarn. Isn't it gorgeous? I knew I had to make something from it that was worthy of it's beauty, so I sat down and made myself (sans pattern) this beautiful scarflette & headband to keep me warm. I LOVE IT!! :) So what do you think? Look at the pretty cables!
