Everyone where I work is doing a collective diet. Even if I am not participating it still slightly affects my food choices. You can't be the jerk who brings fried chicken or a patty melt to lunch. Don't even think of eating a doughnut in the sight of others. That is just plain rude.
Fortunately one of my favorite lunch options just happens to be light, filled with veggies and is oh so tasty. Not a whiff of offense could be caught with this tasty soup!
1 pound of ground chicken
1/2 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
3 green peppers, chopped
24 ounces tomato sauce
4 cups chicken stock
2 cups of cooked rice
First, brown the chicken in a large pot over medium heat. Add in some salt and pepper while this is cooking. Add in the onion, garlic, and green peppers. Allow this to cook for another five to ten minutes.
Pour the tomato sauce in carefully along with the chicken stock. Bring this to a simmer over medium high heat for about ten minutes. I also use water mixed with chicken base pretty regularly.
After ten minutes, add in the rice. If you add the rice in too soon, it will get mushy and fall apart in the soup. I like to add a little extra salt and pepper in at the end. Crushed red pepper is also a nice addition.
Try this soup out and you will love it!
