Rice and Potato Soup

We love soups! After all the measuring, peeling, chopping, and stirring, they are worth it. I usually end up with enough soup for two or three days which allows me do something else apart from making dinner.

Rice and Potato Soup

3 tablespoons olive oil
3 potatoes, peeled and diced
3 carrots, peeled and diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 celery stalk, diced
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
10 cups chicken broth
1 cup long grain brown rice
salt
pepper

In a deep pot, cook the potatoes in the olive oil, turning occasionally, until brown, about 5 minutes. Add the carrots, onions, and celery; cook 2 – 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in garlic.

Pour chicken broth into pot; heat to a boil, then turn down and simmer for 40 minutes. Add salt and pepper. Add rice and cook 12 minutes, or until rice is tender. Serves 4.

For the dairy crowd: sprinkle some Romano or Parmesan cheese on top.
