A really tasty soup which two friends and I enjoyed today for lunch. Being so quick to prepare, this is a great recipe to have in one's repertoire. Since it has so few ingredients, I believe that it is essential to use a really tasty broth; it also makes this a versatile recipe to which you can so readily add vegetables which you have on hand and which would perhaps be better used today rather than tomorrow. I used my Vegetable Stock #135453, and added a leek (that otherwise was in danger of not being used) in step one and a couple of handfuls of chopped baby spinach leaves in step five. And I followed ellie_'s lead in using a mixture of wild rice and regular rice, as I always enjoy this blend. Thank you, Engrossed, for sharing another flavoursome recipe.
