Expert Tips

  • *The rice for this soup was cooked with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 clove garlic and 1/4 cup minced onion; with a 1 to 2 ratio of rice to chicken broth or water. Salt and pepper, if desired. Basmati rice can be used since it does not get mushy during heating the soup. Or use frozen rice if in a hurry.
  • Broth amounts may vary, since rice and potatoes are starches, and they tend to absorb water.
