These tasty soup recipes are hearty and satisfying thanks to that pantry staple, rice. They’re filling, nourishing, and delicious—comfort food at its best!
If you’re looking for yummy, budget-friendly dinner ideas, try one of these soup recipes! From white rice to wild rice, there’s a soup recipe for just about any rice in your pantry. I love how rice is an easy and affordable way to bulk up a soup and make it more filling. I first used this trick in my tomato and rice soup, and ever since, I’ve loved how rice can be the perfect ingredient in a cozy soup.
This lemon chickpea soup is light and delicious with a uniquely rich and creamy texture. It’s a vegetarian twist on the Greek dish, avgolemono, which uses eggs to thicken the broth and lemon juice to add a bright, fresh flavor.
This risotto soup is a fabulous one-pot butter bean and rice minestrone that is fragrant with saffron, chili, garlic, and bay leaves. A hit at dinner parties, it can also be made ahead. It's utterly delicious and comforting!
