Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Chicken Sausage and Blended Rice
Cooking dinner for myself and my husband is a priority for me, and one that I enjoy, but many nights it’s hard to find time to cook. Yesterday we planned to see a late afternoon movie and my original plan to make a homemade pizza when we got home got a wrench thrown in it when I realized it started at 5:30 (not 5) and was nearly 2 1/2 hours long (Manchester By The Sea = worth it!).
I looked in my freezer and pantry and in one minute had a new plan. We got home at 8:10 and were eating by 8:20. Here’s what I used:
1 box Trader Joe’s Roasted Red Pepper Soup (THE BEST!!)
1 Fontina cheese and spinach precooked chicken sausage
1 bag Birdseye frozen brown & wild rice with broccoli and carrots
The rice goes in the microwave for 4 minutes while you dice the chicken sausage and divide the soup into bowls. After the rice is done, split it evenly, along with the chicken sausage, into the soup and reheat about 90 seconds. That. Is. It.
