How to Make a Simple Vegetable Rice Soup

This simple vegetable rice soup can be your Monday meatless meal or a side dish. Add chicken, turkey or mushrooms. Make it your own. Serves 4 Total Time: 30 minutes 


1 tablespoon olive oil 
1 medium yellow onion, chopped 
4 carrots, peeled and chopped 
4 celery stalks, chopped 
4 cups chicken broth 
4 cups water
1/2 cup rice
1 tablespoon dried parsley 


In your Dutch Oven add the oil on med/high heat when hot add in the onions, carrots and celery. Cook for 5 minutes or until softened and translucent. Add the broth and water then bring to a boil. When boiling add the rice and parsley. Cover, reduce heat to medium and cook for 15 minutes or until rice is tender. Taste for seasoning, add salt and pepper if needed. Serve immediately. 

Note: Because rice will eventually soak in any liquid, this is not a good soup for leftovers. (Unless you don’t care) If you made a big batch and want leftovers you might want to add the rice per serving.
