      I did cut this recipe in half just for the 2 of us, & we found the soup to be solidly satisfying! I've never used much arborio rice, but did find it nice in combination with the carrots & onion! I suspect much of the flavor we enjoyed, though, came from the homemade vegetable broth that I used, since it has so much more flavor than the store-bought kind! Thanks for sharing your recipe with us! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]

      I liked this, but wasn't thouroughly impressed by it. I did add garlic, but I still found it to be bland. I also didn't care for the texture of the pureed arborio rice. I think I would like this much better without that rice, or using diced potatoes instead. I actually think you could skip the starch, though. But definitely needs more herbs/spices. It's a nice base to work from. Thanx!
