Broccoli and Rice Soup

My husband asked me to make him something relatively mild for his stomach. He was coming off a cleans and didn't want to upset his stomach too much right off the bat. I thought soup should do the trick. He loved it. Hope you do as well. Note: I used Great Valley Rice Medley from Costco

This is wonderful. I'd love it at any time of year but after all of the Christmas richness it's a double delight. I used a red rice medley that added a great touch of color as well as a lot of texture. There is a whole lot of eye appeal and taste to enjoy with this recipe.

As we have an onion allergy, we used a vegetable stock containing no onion and also did not add the extra garlic although it would be a welcome addition if on hand. This recipe was simple and worked well for a mild recipe on the tummy.

DD and DD liked this one. I did use homemade chicken stock (Betty Crocker Recipe) and it made more than stated. I may make this again.
