  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 3 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley


  • Step 1
    Heat 1/4 cup broth in a large saucepan over medium heat.

  • Step 4
    SUBSTITUTION: If you have extra vegetables in your refrigerator that need to be cooked, add them to this soup; that way, it becomes something different every time you make it. If you can tolerate tomatoes, they would be a great addition to this recipe.
