One good mix
Here’s a gluten-free side from cooksimple.com that will appeal to everyone at your Thanksgiving table. Cooksimple’s line of all-natural meal kits includes Cranberry Wild Rice, a delicious balance of lightly sweetened cranberries and deep flavors of wild rice and mushroom accented with rosemary, parsley and thyme.
The dish takes less than 30 minutes to prepare, and all cooksimple products are gluten-free with no artificial additives, preservatives or added sugars and by simply adding diced turkey or chicken, it becomes a complete meal. Serve it cold as a salad or warm as a stew. Each cooksimple kit retails for $4.99 and yields 4-5 servings. Available at Mills Pharmacy & Apothecary in Birmingham, or online at http://www.thehealthypantry.com/default/meals.
