Melt Earth Balance in large pot over medium heat.
Add onion, carrots, and celery and sauté until soft.
Add thyme and cook for a couple of minutes.
Stir in the rice flour and keep stirring for about a minute.
Then stir in chicken broth and milk.
Continue stirring until soup is slightly thickened.
Add potatoes and chicken.
Simmer on low until potatoes are tender.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with parsley on top.
I will admit that I didn't measure all of my ingredients well as I was cooking, so you may need to use more liquid to make sure the potatoes are covered.
This makes one giant pot of soup so I had leftovers for another day!
