Looking for something warm, filling, delicious and nutritious? Look no further! Not only did I scoop the bowl clean, but I couldn’t wait for seconds. And, as an added bonus, this meal makes enough to last for several meals … a great help when you have to make everything from scratch!
Becky’s latest dish is a genius recombination of tried and true sulphite/salicylate-free ingredients that will leave your tummy full, your allergic reactions quiet, and your heart happy. THANK YOU, BECKY!!!!!!! And, as an added bonus, she’s thrown in two amazing staple recipes — homemade cream of chicken soup and homemade alfredo sauce! Sigh of contentment. Enjoy!
Hamburger Hot Rice Dish
2 lbs ground beef
2 ½ cups Homemade Cream of Chicken soup (Recipe Below)
2 cups water
¼ cup soy sauce
1 cup diced celery
1 cup white rice
Brown meat in skillet. Add remaining ingredients. Stir well and pour into a 9×13 pan. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for one hour or until rice is tender.
Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup
6 tablespoons butter
¾ cup all-purpose flour
1 ½ cup chicken broth
1 ½ cup milk
salt to taste
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in flour; keep stirring until smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat and add the chicken broth and milk, a little at a time, stirring to keep smooth. Return to heat. Bring sauce to a gentle boil; cook, stirring constantly, until it thickens. Taste and add salt as needed to taste.
Use in casseroles in place of condensed cream soups.
1 Cup Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup
1 Cup Whipping Cream
1 Cup Milk
3-4 ounces Lake County Cheese*, grated
Heat first three ingredients until almost boiling, slowly stir in grated cheese until melted. Add salt to taste. Serve over pasta and sautéed chicken breast .
*Lake Country Cheese is made with sheep’s milk and sea salt, and can be found at your local Costco. While every cheese has its risks, this cheese is the closest I can find (other than Brie or fresh Mozerella) that produces a low or no reaction. It is also the only cheese I have found that I can shred, so I use it on pretty much everything! It has a bit of a sharpness and works well on almost everything.
