Well. I made some soup today, but I don't have a picture :( My bad. It wasn't that pretty anyway. BUT... Here is kind of what I did.

3/4 c. Bob's Red Mill Vegi soup Mix or dry Lentils

3/4 c. brown rice

3/4 c. frozen corn

3/4 c. frozen edamame

2 tbsp. olive oil

1/2 yellow onion, diced

1/4 c. fresh cilantro

1/2 c or to taste roasted diced green chilies

1/2 tsp. salt

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

3 1/4 c. vegetable broth

1/2 c. water

1 clove garlic, crushed

1-2 c. snow peas


Add broth and water to a medium-large stockpot. Bring to a boil.  Add Soup Mix,Brown Rice, salt, olive oil and black pepper. Set Timer for 60:00. Turn heat down to medium-low and simmer.

In a separate skillet, sauté onion and garlic until golden and add to pot. Also add Cilantro and green chili at the same time.

When it has been summering for 40:00 add snow peas and stir. If the soup needs more liquid, add water 1 cup at a time until the rice mixture is covered.

When it has been simmering for 50:00 add frozen corn and edemame and stir. Once again, add more water if needed.

Cook for another 10 minutes or until mixture is soft.


I would trust your gut when making this recipe. It’s not that exact yet. Just a kitchen creation with what I had. Use whatever veggies you have. Use different spices. Just use a lentil/rice broth base and your set.


The green chili i used in this recipe was a small Ziploc bag full that were had in our freezer from when we buy roasted green chilies every year . These were spicy chilies, so use mild ones if you don’t like spicy things.
