This is a great dieting soup - it is nutritious and tastes really good (even better the next day).

This is a really good wholesome soup! We loved it. I cut back on the rice (1 Cup) and added an extra 1 1/2 cups of Chicken broth as we like our soup fairly thin. Thanks for the recipe. It is very easy to make.

We really enjoyed this soup. I've never had rice in a soup before but loved it in this; it really made it. I wanted a soup that was light as it was going to go with whole wheat bread and this was perfect. I added about a cup more broth as I had a little extra and I thought the soup needed it. It came out great! Thank you Dancer for another fantastic recipe. Kindcook
