fast Brussels sprouts and rice soup.

I don’t know about where you are, but where I am, it’s FREEZING!! it’s so cold that a trip to the store (which is a block away) was totally out of the question for me. I knew I had some Brussels sprouts and I always have rice, so I put the two together and made a super yummy but super easy to make soup! start to finish, it took me about 15mins to make 2 servings.

what you need:
6 or 7 Brussels sprouts, cut into strips
6 tbs rice
2 tbs olive oil
tsp crushed red pepper
2 tsp shallots
1 clove garlic, minced
3 cups broth (I used chicken)
Parmesan cheese (topping)

In a medium saucepan heat olive oil and crushed red pepper over medium high heat for about a minute. Add in shallots and garlic, wait another minute and then add sprouts. Stir them around for about 2 mins, until their color is brighter. Add broth and rice and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to simmer for 10-12 mins. serve! put some Parmesan cheese on top if you want, I did!!

DELICIOUS!
