DIRECTIONS

  • If using fresh tomatoes, use a food mill or press them through a colander. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in large sauce pan. Saute onion and celery until the onion is clear and celery is soft.
  • Combine tomato puree or ready-cut tomatoes, broth, and onion-celery mixture in blender. Blend until smooth. Push through a medium seive to remove any remaining celery strings. Pour back into sauce pan. Add seasonings and uncooked rice. Simmer for 1 to 1-1/2 hours until rice is tender and soup has thickened somewhat.
  • NOTE: if using white rice, reduce cooking time to 20-30 minutes.
  • Serve garnished with parmesan cheese.
