I left out the tomatoes due to personal preference so because of that I added a bit more chicken broth and rice. I felt the recipe needed more herbs but maybe that was my own fault for not using the seasoned tomatoes. I ended up adding some Italian seasoning but that was all. I really liked the hot pepper flakes and will double them next time. This was a good soup and one I will make again. It was super simple and is one that is easily adjusted to fit your tastes.

I needed a veggie soup fast for my baby girl's supper. Therefore I just chopped everything super small including the chicken and brought the stock with 2 cups of water to a boil. I reduced to a simmer and continued cooking until the vegetables were soft. I used a can of Italian seasoned tomatoes for extra flavour. This soup is delicious! It had tons of flavour and my girl ate two bowls full. I puréed it after cooking for her. Read More

Used turkey instead of chicken. I added more rice but failed to add more liquid ended up with a turkey rice and vegetable goulash! Wonderful flavor and filling Read More
