"This recipe adapted to help me stick to a 'good' carb eating program for weight loss. The whole family loves it! Very easy to make too! Note: You can substitute canned beef broth for the 'beef base' if you want. I also recommend the low-sodium kind. Also, once the rice is cooked through, if it looks like more water is needed, go ahead and add it to your liking."

"This is a simple but good soup. With a few changes it was very good. I followed the recipe as written other then I only used 6 cups of water. I thought it was a bit bland so added a total of 8 beef boullion cubes. I used a 16 ounce bag of coleslaw mix and didn't add the zucchini as I didn't have any. I also added a good bit of pepper. The longer this sits, the better it is. We really enjoyed this with the changes made."
"Made this recipe the other day and it was simple and delicious. I'm a soup lover and will make this again in the future. Thanks"
"I came across this recipe while searching for ones using brown rice. Great soup! Thanks alot - light yet filling. Great recipe!!!"
"We really enjoyed this soup, I used the hand blender to puree it for the kids as they are funny about veggies but they both ate it all!!! It was a nice tasting easy to make soup, I used real onion instead of the dried flakes. Thanks for a yummy soup recipe."
"wow this is a really thick soup, just the way we like soup! very nice combination of flavours. Had to made a couple of changes, had no dried onion flakes, subed with a very large leek, chopped and I used canned beef broth and added a little dried garlic chips. Came out very tasty and we will be making it again. I love having good soup in the freezer for lunch and this one fit the bill, delicious for supper tonight and the rest went in the freezer. Thanks for posting Pam!!"
"Soup often makes for a simple lunch or a light evening meal at our house. This super easy to make soup was absolutely delicious, light yet filling. I made as posted but did use homemade beef broth. This is an excellent combination for a very tasty soup. Will definitely be making this one again ... and again! Thank you for sharing. "
