I love this recipe because it is sooooo easy.
In a large pot:
1 whole green pepper
1 whole onion
1/2 bag mini carrots
4 stalks celery
8 cups water
boullion cubes or chicken soup mix
Bring to a boil. Puree veggies with soup using an emulsion blender (or blend this after it cools down in a blender), making a slightly thicker soup base. (you can hide lots of veggies in there!)
Put back into large pot. Add 4 tbsp of curry powder if you want. If someone doesn't like curry, sprinkle on individual bowls at serving time.
Add cooked chicken (boneless/skinless) or leftover chicken/turkey....I plan to try this with sausage removed from the casings and fried up too.
Bring to a boil. Add 3 cups of rice to pot. Stir until rice is edible.....THIS WILL HAPPEN! the soup part disappears! I just keep adding water. LOL
This dish reheats well in the microwave and warms tummies when it is cold.
