I like the use of the veggies and I was surprisingly impressed with the microwaved meatballs! There was no mention of when to add the rice, so I did it about halfway though the second step because it takes so long to cook. The problem I had with this soup was the broth. It really doesn't have much flavour and I had to keep adding water because it was boiling away. I would use broth and not cook the veggies for so long if I were to make it again. I gave this 4 stars however because I like the flavour of the meatballs and the concept is very good. Made for My 3 Chefs game. Thanks Terry! :)
