Today, I spent 4 hours getting pierced and tortured by ink filled needles, so comfort food was in order! What better fits the bill than a good old home made hearty chicken & rice soup?

So simple and easy to make, all you need is an onion, a few carrots, some rice and some home made chicken stock, from which, of course, you have removed all possible traces of fat. Bring stock to a boil, throw in the vegetables and rice, simmer until all is nice and tender. Sprinkle with a little bit of flat leaf parsley, a hefty dose of freshly cracked pepper and you’re good to go. Instant comforting!
