SUPER fast and so easy – this hearty Tomato Soup packs a real punch with the addition of brown rice & quinoa! Perfect for weeknights, this will stick to your ribs!
Soup, glorious soup!
I actually have an entire pinterest board dedicated to soup. I am lucky enough to be married to a man who also believes soup can be an entire meal (if there’s enough of it), and we regularly chow down on hearty bowls of deliciousness. Even in summer!
Homemade is always better than store bought when it comes to flavor, but I’m absolutely not above using a few cheats/short cuts to make dinner time go a lot smoother for me. Sometimes I stand at the door of my pantry and play “chopped” – ie, make dinner out of whatever I find in there. Some days are a win, some are not… it can get pretty interesting, to be honest!Love this? Tweet it!Click To Tweet
In THIS case, it worked out amazingly. Just a few very simple ingredients used well, meant some serious goodness. I mean LOOK:
Wouldn’t you like a big bowl of this? I know. Me too. I made this the other day and there is none left… whomp whomp whoommmp. Thankfully, it’s pretty easy to make again!
The key to great meals on the fly, is keeping your pantry well stocked with staples. Of which, I consider Veetee rice packages to be ESSENTIAL.
A few simple ingredients, and you could have this TOO! I’ve partnered with Veetee Wholegrain Brown Rice & Quinoa to bring you this yummy tomato soup!
A brilliant short-cut, Veetee Wholegrain Brown Rice & Quinoa is my go-to for anytime I need rice. The great thing about this blend is you also get the goodness of quinoa in it too.
