Chicken Soup with Rice

Yield: 8


  • The Ingredients
  • 3 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 9 cups water
  • 4 vegetable bouillon cubes (we like the McCormick brand because it doesn't have MSG in it)
  • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped (leaves and all)
  • 1 cup carrots, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 drops Tabasco sauce
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 cups long grain brown rice, rinsed well


  • Break up and dissolve the bouillon cubes in 1/2 cup warm water.
  • Place all the ingredients except the rice in a large pot and bring the ingredients to a rolling boil.
  • Add rinsed rice and cook until rice is tender (about 50 minutes).
  • Serve with crackers or a batch of our Vegan Biscuits

Of course, once the soup has settled in our bellies, we gather in the living room and dance to Carole King’s song; Chicken Soup With Rice.
