Chunky Tomato Soup with Rice

I had to make some of my son's favorite foods for his birthday supper.

He loves cheesy broccoli pie, so I made that. But it is so not frugal, since cheese AND broccoli are ridiculously expensive, so I won't share that recipe here.

He also loves chunky mashed potatoes, but I would hope everyone knows how to boil potatoes and mash them.

I also made a sweet potato, fig, craisin, and pistachio salad, but that was for me (yay for cheap sweet potatoes last week!)!

SO... I will share the chunky tomato soup recipe.

1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
olive oil
Sautee onion and garlic in olive oil in a nice, thick bottomed soup pot, till browning

4 tomatoes, chopped
Continue to cook, stirring frequently for about 10 min.

500g tomato paste
6 cups water
salt, pepper, and ground allspice to taste.

Bring it to a boil, then add (already cooked) brown rice. (I cooked my rice pareve the other day, with a leftover remake in mind!)

Heat thoroughly.

Serve generous portions, my kids all really loved it. 


  1. We always had tomato soup with rice when I was a kid - love it still.

    1. I don't remember having rice in my tomato soup as a child. but then again, i only remember having tomato soup from a can as a child. woops! should i not have said that?

  2. I would have preferred creamy tomato soup, but that was good. Thanks!
