Delicious and simple :) I used more stock and carrot and added a bit of celery, potato and tomato paste. Also added pearl barley rather than rice which worked nicely. It might be an idea to add green/brown lentils as well for a bit more texture if you want it a bit heartier - the red ones break up a lot. Thanks for adding, I'll definitely be making this one again.

This is a really great soup! I followed the recipe exactly and it came out hearty and flavorful, with a nice thick-ish texture. Delicious.

I guarantee I'll be making this soup again. It requires almost no work, it's extremely economical, and the taste is really outstanding. I can't think of a single change I'd make. Thanks for sharing, Irmgard!
