When I started this blog there was a regular post series called “Soup Sunday“. Pretty soon I realized I can’t post soup every Sunday. Still my love for soup has not diminished. I love soup and eat it often – specially during winter time. So when I started cooking today my hot tomato soup with rice I had left over, I figured why not share a recipe.
When I cook soup I usually don’t do anything fancy but whip up something with ingredients I can find in the fridge and the pantry. Often times it is made of left-overs.
Soups with added rice are a childhood favorite. When I used to be sick and my mom would ask me what I’d like to eat I would always say rice soup. It was basically just some chicken broth with a few carrots and rice. I loved it.
So today I got a bit more adventures – or choose the quicker recipe.
Ingredients you need:
- 250 ml Tomate passata (sieved tomatoes)
- 250 ml water
- 2 tsp pesto
- 1/2 tps chilli flakes
- 1/2-1 cup of cooked rice
- 1/2-1 cup cubed feta cheese
- Pour tomato and water into a pot and start heating.
- Add pesto, salt and chili flakes. Let simmer for a bit.
- When close to being done add rice for three minutes.
- Add feta before serving.
Enjoy your quick and easy hot tomato soup.
