This easy to make soup is full of flavour and makes a nice snack or light meal. It is easy to digest and full of garlic, so I often serve it to my kids when they are sick. On a cold day this warm bowl of soup with hot sauce, really warms me up.
Cooking time 45 minutes
2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
1 tsp (5 ml) cumin seeds
1 1/2 tsp (7 ml) brown mustard seeds
1/2 cup (125 ml) diced red onions
1 bulb crushed garlic
3 1/2 cups (875 ml) diced tomatoes
3 cups (750 ml) greens beans
4 cups (1 L) boiling water
3 cups (750 ml) cooked short grain brown rice
1 tbsp (15 ml) salt
1. Heat a large stock pot on medium-high heat and add the olive oil. When the oil is hot add the cumin and mustard seeds.
2. When the seeds pop add the garlic and sauté until golden. Add the onions and sauté until caramelized.
3. Ad the green beans and cook until they begin to soften and then add the tomatoes. Cook the tomatoes until they turn to mush. You may need to add some water during this process.
4. Add the water and rice to bring to a boil. Add the salt and serve.
