Tomato and Rice Soup

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 (6 oz.) can tomato paste
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 can (28 oz.) diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups veg. broth
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp. dried basil

Fry onion and garlic in olive oil until onion is soft.  Add tomato paste and seasonings, and cook for another couple of min.  Add veg. broth and sugar, and bring to a simmer.  You can use an immersion blender, at this pt., for a smoother soup (if desired).  Add brown rice, and cook on low for 10-15 min.
