Vegetable Rice Soup

I had four cups of rice leftover from making rice pudding and I needed to use it up. It was another one of those days that I didn’t want any meat. My husband was working and I have had my two grandchildren since Thursday night. They wanted pizza so I decided to make myself this Vegetable Rice Soup. Now those that have been following me know how much I love the product Better Than Bouillon! It makes the best chicken, beef or vegetable base for soup that you can buy aside from making it from scratch. If you have never tried it, you should!

1/2 tsp dried thyme

1/2 tsp pepper

***You can use 96 oz of chicken broth in place of the water and Better Than Bouillon but you will need to season it. There is salt in the Better Than Bouillon and that is why I didn’t add any.***
