serves: makes 1 quart of soup

You can make a cup or a gallon of delicious soup by cooking rice in the soup base: multiply or divide this formula as needed. If you like the lighter consistency, use 1/4 cup of rice per quart of base; for a denser soup, use 1/3 cup. Don't start cooking the rice more than 15 minutes before serving, though, since the grains continue to expand and absorb broth even off the heat. Serve immediately after the rice is cooked.


4 cups Savory Potato Broth, (please see recipe for Savory Potato Broth)
½ teaspoon salt, or more if needed
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
⅓ cup long-grain white rice


Heat the broth to a low boil; stir in the salt as needed, the pepper, and the rice. Return to a boil, stir, and cover tightly. Cook over low heat for 12 to 15 minutes, until the rice is tender. Adjust the seasoning and serve right away in warm bowls, with freshly grated cheese, extra-virgin olive oil and other garnishes.
