"This is a great-tasting soup to make on a chilly day," observes Aline Winje of Slocan, British Columbia. "It's easy to fix too." The rich-colored soup has a mild chicken flavor with just a hint of garlic.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat butter
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 2 tablespoons uncooked long grain rice
  • 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, saute onion and garlic in butter until tender. Add the water, carrots, rice and bouillon; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until carrots and rice are very tender.
  2. Remove from the heat; cool slightly. Transfer to a blender or food processor; cover and process until pureed. Return to the saucepan; heat through. Sprinkle with parsley.
