Comfort food at it's best! Totally loved it, and it's so easy. To have a whole meal, I added some shredded cooked left over chicken and had it with some arugula salad. Great light dinner on a warm spring day. Thanks for sharing! Also I loved the story. Thanks so much for another wonderful chapter from the farm book :)
Made for National Tomato Month in the Diabetic Forum.
This is good for a really quick soup to help me get over this cold!!! DD (toddler) enjoyed it as well. I didn't have a problem with the white Basmati rice which I used soaking up the broth but we ate ours right after cooked. Also 1/2 cup cooked means 1/4 cup dry I think! This makes a bit more than 2 servings but not enough for 3 in my opinion. I used unrefined extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, freshly ground pepper in a little less amount, red Tabasco sauce in the amount called for plus I put more on top of mine (good to make this cold go away I think) I left out the croutons as we are gluten free, by mistake I read basil and didn't see the word fresh so I used dried and it was still fine. I would make this again for a quick soup but not really for DH since he doesn't like tomatoes. Made for Veggie Swap 31 ~ February 2011.
Very good!! I ate it all right by myself. I love it. Very Very easy to make when you do not want to cook but must eat. I loved it. Thank You for something I can eat just for myself. Hugs
The end result delicious and the DM and I thoroughly enjoyed. I used doongara rice which may have been the reason I had to use an extra 2 cups of water and we still had a soup that my dear departed dad would be the type of soup that you could eat with a fork. So when making again as a soup I would cut the rice back to 1/3 cup but as is and the extra 2 cups of water I get 3 serves and very filling light meal. Served with Very Good Garlic Bread. Thank you Andi, made for Everyday A Holiday.
Very good flavor. I did have a couple of problems. The rice soaked up all the liquid & stuck to the bottom of the pan. I added a can of tomato soup & a little milk. I know next time it will be great.
