This sounds like such a good and hearty soup. Our family all love soup anytime of the year, and it's a great summer lunch or dinner food. Goes with any kind of sandwich or salad and I like that brown rice in there too.

Thanks for sharing your recipe.

You surely won't need much to make a meal with this soup. It has just about everything including the meat, so I think we'd just add a tossed green salad maybe and some nice fresh crusty bread like a baguette and pass the butter, please. Just reading this has made me hungry.

Thank you Jodi. This recipe gets my vote.
