Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef (85/15 blend)
  • 24 ounces Chunky Tomato, Garlic & Onion Pasta Sauce (1 jar)
  • 20 ounces Frozen Pepper & Onion Blend (1 package)
  • 32 ounces Imagine Foods Organic Low Sodium Vegetable Broth (1 carton)
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked long-grain white rice (white or brown)
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Place a large pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and use a spoon to break up the meat. Cook until no longer pink while breaking into small pieces, about 5 minutes.
  • Add frozen pepper & onion blend. Stir together and cook for 5 minutes. 
  • Pour in 1 jar pasta sauce and 2 cups vegetable broth. Stir everything together. Bring to a boil. Reduce to medium-low temp and cover pot. Simmer for 20 minutes. 
  • While soup is cooking, bring 2 cups water and 1 cup vegetable broth to a boil in a medium-sized pot. Add uncooked rice. Cover and reduce to low temp. Simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is cooked. Remove from heat.
  • Add rice to soup and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. (I usually add 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and go from there.)
  • Portion into bowls and garnish with chopped parsley, if desired. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • If you prefer to use brown rice, you absolutely can. You'll need 3 cups cooked rice total for this recipe.
  • With 3 cups of rice, this soup comes out hearty and thick. If you want a thinner soup, add 2 cups cooked rice (2 cups liquid + 1 cup uncooked rice) instead.
