It was good. Tasted better the second day It had a good flavor . I made it as written except instead of rice I used potatoes as my starch.
Very good soup; I loved the unique idea of adding an envelope of Italian salad sressing mix as the seasoning. That worked out perfectly. I used small ring type pasta instead of rice. For the vegetables, I went with exactly what was listed: carrots, broccoli and red bell pepper.
This is FANTASTIC soup!!! I did add maybe 1/2 t. of chicken bouillon granules to the mix. I used some leftover cooked chicken I had, I sauteed it lightly with a little bit of garlic. I used three cups veggies and cut the starch down to 1/4c. (I used orzo) as I like my soupd heavier on the veggies. For the veggies I used carrots, mushrooms, onion, zucchini, broccoli and with the pasrley I added some roasted red pepper. I will make this over and over again....the veggie combinations are dancing in my head. Thanks so much for sharing this.
