1/4 cup short grain brown rice, uncooked
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon all purpose seasoning blend (I use Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb)
1 (8 ounce) tin no salt added tomato sauce
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar in the raw
1 Combine rice, water, and seasoning in a 6 cup slow cooker (the small size). Turn on slow cooker and let ingredients simmer for about 2 1/4 hours.
2. Add tomato sauce, and stir. Replace cover on slow cooker and let simmer an additional 35 minutes.
3. Remove the soup from the slow cooker and pour into a nice-sized bowl. Stir in sugar (it cuts the acidity of the tomato sauce) and drizzle with olive oil.
