How To Make tomato~broccoli~rice soup

  • 1
    Sauté onion and garlic in butter until onion is soft.
  • 2
    Whisk together the broth, juice and salad dressing mix until well blended and add to onions. (Note - If time allows, stir the dressing mix into the tomato juice earlier in the day and let sit in the refrigerator for a few hours to blend the flavors. Also, I like the Aldi and Lidl dressing mixes better than name-brand.) Simmer on low for 5 minutes.
  • 3
    Stir in broccoli, brown rice and peppers. Continue simmering for another 5 minutes.
