Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

Add a festive touch to your soup presentation with: A small dollop of sour cream. A touch of cilantro pesto over soup. A sprinkle of fresh cilantro and croutons. Or add a flavor twist to this recipe by using apples instead of pears!

Add these trimmings to complete your dinner. If you're serving 8, double the Roasted Vegetable Medley. What's great, you can make the dessert tart as well as the pearl onions a day ahead of time.
