Tomato Rice Soup

Tomato Rice Soup

MARBALET

This is an elegant version of the old-fashioned tomato and rice soup, studded with fresh seafood. If you want a simpler dish, omit the seafood. If you are lucky enough to have a garden full of fresh tomatoes, you can substitute them for the canned variety. Use about 1 and 1/2 pounds ripe tomatoes, cored and chopped.

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, and carrot; cook and stir vegetables until they begin to soften, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Add rice and cook, stirring until rice is evenly coated in oil, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in undrained tomatoes, chicken broth, and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. Rinse the scallops, and if large cut scallops in half. Stir the scallops into soup, and cover. Continue to simmer until the rice is tender and the scallops are opaque, approximately 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in the basil, and serve.

I've made this soup following the recipe, and also with my own changes. Both were delicious. To change, I used cooked orzo pasta instead of rice and replaced the seafood with chicken. Note though, the orzo soaked up a LOT of the liquid and got so big and fat that the soup turned into a stew. Still very yummy though! Oh, and I also added a splash of white wine to the veggies when sauteing them, as I always seem to have some leftover wine in the fridge. It gives the finished product a nice depth.

One of the best tasting soups ever! For a vegetarian meal I left out the scallops and used a homemade veggie broth. I also changed to brown rice (because that's what I had). I had to add 1 more cup of broth and it still turns out very thick but my hubby and I prefer it that way. For a bit more flavour I doubled the basil, so tasty!!!

This was really good. I added some garlic to the vegs. Instead of 2 cups chicken broth I used 3/4 white wine and the rest chicken broth. I added about a Tbsp of lemon juice before adding the scallops. I didn't find this thick at all.
