trader joe sells a rice blend called "california trilogy" which contains brown basmati, long grain white, and wild rice, and i cooked 1 cup of this to add to the soup.i used leftover chicken that i had bbq'd, and cut my zucchini large so my picky family could pick out the zucchini and i could pick out the chicken, lol. i think the bbq sauce from the chicken added a bit of spice. with fresh herbs from the still existant garden, this was surprisingly delicious for something so quick and easy, i used madeira for the finishing touch, i loved this soup!
