Step One:

Chop onion and carrots into relatively large peices. I suggest you chop them different sizes for texture purposes.

In a pan over medium heat sauté onion and carrot; roughly 3-4 minutes.

Step Four:

Add enough water to cover the ingredients and bring to a boil. Boil on medium-high until the soup begins to turn an orange-y color (about 20 minutes). This ensures the tomatoes are not bitter and acidic in flavor.

Step Five:

Cut open and add in 1 pre-portioned bag of your favorite rice (about 3/4 cup of loose rice). Cook the soup with the rice for the specified time on it’s packaging.

Step Six:

Let the soup cool and serve. This recipe is versatile and can be adapted to a non-vegan recipe. Top with shredded chicken breast, sour cream, and a few dashes of hot sauce for a delicious addition!
