You don't have to load a soup with cream to achieve a lush consistency. Here, a little rice and silken tofu thicken this French-inspired soup. Make It a Meal: Add a tossed salad with cured olives and a mustard vinaigrette.

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare the soup (Steps 1 & 3), cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. When ready to serve, make crostini and reheat the soup (Steps 2 & 4).
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
2 cups water
1/4 cup white rice
1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup silken tofu
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
6 3/4-inch-thick slices baguette
3 tablespoons shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

DIRECTIONS
Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir in broth, water and rice; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is very tender, about 15 minutes.


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.


Stir tomatoes, tofu and vinegar into the soup. Remove from the heat and puree, in batches, in a blender. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids). Return the soup to the pot and reheat over medium-high heat, stirring often.


Meanwhile, top slices of baguette with mozzarella and place on a baking sheet. Bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 5 minutes. Ladle soup into bowls and top each serving with a cheesy crostini.

Very Good,
When I made this I made a mistake and put three Tbls. apple cider vinegar in it. Wow, was it tart. I put it my slow cooker for about three hours and the vinegar was very mild then. I will be making this again. My wife Mona, wants me to made it again real soon. We served it with homemade french bread in the bowl.
