chicken and rice soup

Being limited to 15 foods makes for some interesting recipes . . . here is one I came up with last night . . . and it's good! It's THICK soup, more like a porridge or stew. Tastes good and digests easily. And it's quick to make. Hope you like it!

1.5 cups diced organic carrots
.5 lb cooked organic chicken, chopped
3 cups cooked white rice (you could use brown as well)
1 can (15oz) light coconut milk from Trader Joe's (this is what makes it yummy!)
4 cups organic chicken broth
3 Tbls fresh cilantro or 3 tsp dried
1 tsp salt

Saute the carrots in a little bit of olive oil for 10-15 minutes or until slightly tender. Add everything else and bring to a boil. Turn to low and let simmer for 1-2 hours with a lid on. Check on it a few times and add a little water if it starts to get too thick.

Have a great Monday!
