A Dom Deluise recipe. This actually dates back to the Depression era. It's inexpensive, tasty and good for you. Make sure you use uncooked rice in this recipe. Serve with additional grated cheese. Note: I've read the reviews and adjusted the liquid.

I turned this into a vegan dish by using vegetable stock instead of chicken broth and by omitting the parmesan cheese. I used brown rice, also. It was absolutely DELICIOUS and my 5 children ate the entire pot! Even my baby girl, who just turned 1, ate 3 bowls of it. Will definitely make this again, especially on those nights my fridge and pantry are bare and I only have staples - as was the case tonight.

I made this on Saturday and planned to freeze half, but DARN, I ate it all by yesterday! Except for using parsley flakes because I didn't have fresh, I followed the recipe and it is so simple to make. My mom made a simpler version (just half-beef-half-chicken broth, potatoes, rice and dried minced onion). It warms the soul. I'm going to try this again using Arborio rice, but already I wish I could give 10 stars. Thank you so much for posting and I'm honored to be the first to review it.

I tried it and this was AWESOME!! I used 2 c of water and 4 c of chix broth. I didn't have any fresh ingredients. So I added powdered onion and garlic. Parsley flakes and salt and pepper. I used brown rice and about 3 small potatoes. I also added 1 tblspn of olive oil. I didn't turn into a chowder for me, it stayed "soupy". DELISH. Thanks for posting!
