DIRECTIONS

  • Chop the veggies into 1/2 inch pieces, toss directly into a large soup pot.
  • Mince the garlic, add and cook them in a little olive oil till the onions are clear and the carrots are starting to get a bit soft. (You should be able to cut a carrot in half with the wooden spoon but not really easily).
  • If using any other veggies add them so they're also about half cooked at the same time.
  • Add canned tomatoes and use the can to measure and add an equal amount of water; stir.
  • Crumble the veggie ground beef in, add spices and stir. At this time you can taste and adjust seasonings. The thickness should be about what you want as a finished product.
  • Bring to a gentle boil.
  • Now add the rice and the amount of water it will absorb (check the package, they vary) and simmer until rice and veggies are all soft and flavors combined.
  • Serve topped with sour cream, and grated cheddar, and bread or a simple salad.
