"A Dom Deluise recipe. This actually dates back to the Depression era. It's inexpensive, tasty and good for you. Make sure you use uncooked rice in this recipe. Serve with additional grated cheese. Note: I've read the reviews and adjusted the liquid."
Serving Size: 1 (386 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"I turned this into a vegan dish by using vegetable stock instead of chicken broth and by omitting the parmesan cheese. I used brown rice, also. It was absolutely DELICIOUS and my 5 children ate the entire pot! Even my baby girl, who just turned 1, ate 3 bowls of it. Will definitely make this again, especially on those nights my fridge and pantry are bare and I only have staples - as was the case tonight."
"I forgot to rate this keeper. We loved it. Thanks."
"I made this on Saturday and planned to freeze half, but DARN, I ate it all by yesterday! Except for using parsley flakes because I didn't have fresh, I followed the recipe and it is so simple to make. My mom made a simpler version (just half-beef-half-chicken broth, potatoes, rice and dried minced onion). It warms the soul. I'm going to try this again using Arborio rice, but already I wish I could give 10 stars. Thank you so much for posting and I'm honored to be the first to review it."
"I tried it and this was AWESOME!! I used 2 c of water and 4 c of chix broth. I didn't have any fresh ingredients. So I added powdered onion and garlic. Parsley flakes and salt and pepper. I used brown rice and about 3 small potatoes. I also added 1 tblspn of olive oil. I didn't turn into a chowder for me, it stayed "soupy". DELISH. Thanks for posting!"
"Made as written this is definately more of a really thick stew than a soup, but I really enjoyed it that way. This was so simple, inexpensive and good. I'll make this again! Thank you!"
"This is good but I believe depending on the rice chosen it needs more chicken broth or water than even edited for as per the introduction note! I used white Indian Basmati rice and it just kept absorbing the liquids. I used homemade chicken stock and water. I also think cooking time as another reviewer noted is too long for some types of rice as well, as was the case with the one I used it all broke up almost. This is delicious but I suggest the rice be cut in half as I would do again if I was in need of this recipe (nothing in the cupboard). I did feel the wish to spice mine up so I added lots of freshly ground black pepper and cayenne along with grated halloumi cheese as that is the only cheese I had on hand. It helped tone down the cayenne too. I used yellow fleshed potatoes and sea salt plus the rest. Made for Zaar Stars Tag Game Dec. 2010 - Jan. 2011."
"This might be a cheapo depression soup but it sure is good! The consistency is almost creamy; thick, warming and filling. I used only 1 tbsp of oil and didn't miss the other 3 tbsp, used 2 potatoes and cut the rice back to 3/4 cup. I still needed an extra 2 cups of water. BTW - I usually always cook my soups 100% with broth and never water, however, you could not tell that this was partially water. I added salt and pepper to taste upon serving."
"Filling and tasty soup! I don't care for onions so left them out, and I didn't peel my potatoes. I had to add the extra water as you suggested and my soup was still thick, like a chowder. Made as directed this was very good; next time I'll probably add a chopped jalapeno and maybe top with a little cheddar. Thanks for posting this recipe!"
"Reminds me of rice with onions.DDs loved it.I've only made a half batch.It's very hard to photograph though."
"Very quick and easy. I started off with 3 cups of broth ( after reading other reviews ) and still had to add one more cup at the end.. Very good soup!"
"Really a tasty soup. I did dice a carrot and added it for color. The servings and time is off for this soup. It made much more than four servings. I had to add some water at about 15 minutes of simmering time or I would have had a rice dish with no liquid. For a soupier soup, you may have to add water. DD loved this, as did I. Very budget friendly and easy to do. Made for Football Pool, 2010. P"
"Nice Soup! I used all chicken broth, doubled the garlic and added crushed chili flakes. While it was simmering I did have to add an additional can of chicken broth. Tasty. Made for Ausie Swap #37."
"wonderful soup! i increased the garlic to 4 large cloves, added in some crushed chili flakes and used all chicken broth, seasoned with seasoned salt and lots of black pepper, then sprinkled the top with fresh grated Parmesan cheese, we thoroughly enjoyed the soup Pat, thanks for posting, this was made for KK's Chef's Pick tag game"
"This was a fabUlous recipe! We are a family of 5, so, I dbld the recipe w/the exception of H2O; increased the chicken broth to 8 cups-('cuz it was too thick @ 4 cups) used 1tsp crushed garlic & 2tsp dried parsely. I'd recommend potato rolls w/this soup. TY for sharing!"
"I can't believe I forgot to rate this recipe. I've been making it for 15+ years. We really love it at our house. It's fast, easy and economical. When I need a fast meal....when I'm too tired to cook a huge meal...actually anytime is a good time for this filling soup!"
