Today was rough. By all accounts. You know those times when you just can't win? When your to-do list stays undone? Where everyone needs something? Where it snows on the first day of April? Yeah.
So I did what any good cook does. I made soup. Last time I was in New York City I stopped into Gluten Free NYC. While gluten isn't the only thing I can't eat, it is one of the toughest to avoid, so whenever there's an opportunity, I check those offerings out!
Of course, being corn-free, potato-free, yeast-free, and egg yolk-free cuts down on the GF choices, so as cool as this little store was, there wasn't a lot there for me. I did manage to snag this little bag of organic, fair-trade King Soba buckwheat Ramen noodles. A little pricey, yes, but not bad for a pack of four imported from the UK.
I cooked them up today with some baby bok choy, chicken broth, and mushroom. Boring, yes. But sometimes in a day filled with unpredictable excitement, that's what you need.
**I can heartily endorse these guys. While definitely pricier than your average ramen, they are delicious, quick-cooking, filling, and certified Gluten Free. King Soba also makes some other products -including ramen noodles with flavor packets. I haven't tried them, and GF NYC stopped stocking them because they didn't think they were up to snuff.
