This soup is very simple and is wonderful when you are not feeling well. It is not complicated and it is not super flavorful, I make it when someone is feeling under the weather and can't hold down a big meal. You can use your favorite rice.

I made this recipe with an adjustment. i didn't have tomato juice so I used tomato sauce and added 1 tbs. white sugar and 1 tsp. celery salt and two beef bourbon cubes I added a cup of water to thin out the sauce. My son loved it. For him, though, I had to add corn. He loves vegetables in his soup. It came out great. Great flavor.

Made this soup as close as I could to the recipe. I didn't have tomato juice, so used tomato puree with water to equal amount called for. I also didn't have fresh basil, so used dried. I found that it needed more liquid, so I added more as the soup was finished cooking. Other than that, the soup was delicious and I will make it often. Thanks!

this was fantastic - I'd been looking for a gluten-free replacement of the Red & White Old Fashioned and the $3 can Amy's plain. This was so good that I'm very glad to have a large pot and a partner who doesn't like tomato soup! Thank you Chef Luma!
