Trader Joe's Rice Noodle Soup Bowls

Yesterday, we had some time to kill before we met friends for lunch at Rocco's Tacos, so we decided to check out the new Trader Joe's on Sand Lake Road, where we discovered their rice noodle soup bowls.

The signage did not indicate that the noodle bowls are gluten free, but all three varieties were labeled gluten free on the packaging, so we decided to buy them for dinner last night.

My daughters both picked the garlic rice noodle soup bowl (ingredients listed above), while my husband and I decided to share a garlic and a mushroom rice noodle bowl (ingredients listed below).

I used the boiling water directions to make our rice noodle soup bowls, but they can also be cooked in the microwave.

Oddly enough, my daughters did not like their garlic rice noodle soup bowls, but my husband and I loved both the garlic and the mushroom.  We thought the broth was incredibly flavorful, and it had just the right amount of noodles for a light meal, which is what we wanted after a big lunch at Rocco's Tacos.  The garlic noodle bowl has just 260 calories, and the mushroom has 280 calories.

We will definitely be purchasing Trader Joe's gluten free rice noodle soup bowls again, and I would like to try the spring onion, the only flavor we did not buy yesterday.

Earlier this week, I stopped at the Trader Joe's in Winter Park to buy more of their rice noodle soup bowls.  I was not sure that I would enjoy the spring onion, because I don't like dishes that have a strong taste of onion, but it was just as delicious as the mushroom and garlic rice noodle soup bowls.
