      This was an easy, quick and delicious soup! Since I had some leftover rice, I simmered the soup then used my stick blender to make it smooth. Then I stirred in the rice. Delicious! Will make a great base to take in other directions--I could see easily giving it a Mexican or Greek twist. Oh, and I made with veggie stock, to accommodate the vegetarian in the house.

      I used two cans of tomatoes, one crushed. I did not use dried basil because I didn't have any. I cooked the veggies as directed, then added the tomatoes and cooked till tender. Then I used an immersion blender, not a food processor. Then I added 3/4 cup medium grain rice because that was the only white rice I had. It did not seem like enough so I ended up putting in about 1/2 cup more. The rice cooked quickly even though I was cooking on low. I set the timer to remind me to stir every ten minutes so the rice wouldn't stick. At the end I added about 1/2 to 3/4 c. Cream and adjusted the salt. YUM
