Glorified Tomato Soup

Another meal created in the midst of packing using the odds and ends still available in my kitchen!  The husband thought it was tasty, so I thought I’d take a minute to share…  Have I mentioned how amazed I am at how slowly packing goes with two tots 2 & under?  We move in one week and two days!  I’m genuinely curious to see whether or not I will manage to get everything packed in that time.

This soup reminded me of the comforting, classic tomato soup taste, but with so much more flavor and filler! 🙂  I took it from appetizer to meal.  That’s what happens!

Glorified Tomato Soup 

  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 7 cups chicken broth divided
  • 1 lb fully cooked kielbasa turkey sausage diced
  • 2 bell peppers chopped (any color)
  • Tomato, Sausage & Pepper Soup11 medium onion chopped
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 can (6oz) tomato paste
  • 1 can Mexican style corn (11oz)
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes with basil, oregano & garlic (14.5 oz each)
  • grated parmesan and multigrain tortilla chips for serving

Bring 2 1/2 cups chicken broth to a boil.  Add rice, cover & simmer until done, about 35 minutes.

While rice is cooking, get your sausage & veggies cut up.  Saute sausage, peppers, & onion in olive oil until veggies are tender and sausage is lightly browned.  Add Cajun seasoning and pepper.  Stir in flour until blended.

Stir in tomato paste, corn, & diced tomatoes.  Pour in remaining 4 1/2 cups chicken broth and bring to a boil.  Stir until thickened slightly.

Sprinkle a hearty amount of parmesan cheese on your bowl and crumble some multigrain chips on top for the best possible taste! 🙂Tomato, Sausage & Pepper Soup
