Middle Eastern Inspired Chicken Soup

11 Dec

Serves: About 6


6 cups chicken broth (I usually use chicken bouillon cubes to keep it cheaper)
2 small onion, chopped finely
1 piece of celery, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup raw rice or 1 cup cooked rice
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1-2 cups diced cooked chicken
1 large tomato, chopped, or one 16 oz. can diced tomatoes with juice

Simmer the broth, onion, celery, carrot, garlic, cumin, and cayenne and simmer for 10 minutes. If using raw rice, add now. Add the cooked rice, if using, the chicken, and the tomato and simmer 10 more minutes.
