SUPER fast and so easy – this hearty Tomato Soup packs a real punch with the addition of brown rice! 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!
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!
How to make this recipe:
For this soup, it really IS as simple as a quick saute of garlic in some olive oil, 2 cans of crushed tomatoes, some basil, and some vegetable or chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then add the cooked brown rice until warmed through.
Tomato Rice Soup
- In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil and cook the garlic for 30 seconds – do not brown or burn!!
- Add the tomatoes, stock and seasonings and bring to a simmer.
