Seven soups every Saturday: rice soup recipes

Seven soup bowls from Canada

In my lifetime, I've purchased at least five rice cookers, most in the under-$20 category, from my local Asian supermarket. The two I still own are slightly broken, in different ways, so this week I treated us to our first fuzzy logic cooker. It's much smaller than any of the others, much smarter, and infinitely more cute. And it's gotten me thinking about rice. Along with chicken noodle soup, chicken-rice and tomato-rice were childhood favorites. Today, rice plays an important role as a gluten-free alternative to noodles in hearty soups.

Seven rice soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Creamy chicken and rice soup, from For the Love of Cooking

Kaki zosui (oyster and rice soup), from La Fuji Mama

Chicken and Spanish rice soup with chickpeas and corn, from Cooking... by the seat of my pants!

Black bean soup with coconut rice, from Frugal Cuisine

Curried vegetable and rice soup, from Stephencooks

Lemon-chicken rice soup, from Recipe Girl

Black bean and rice soup with lime and cilantro, from Kalyn's Kitchen

Find more delicious rice soup recipes with Food Blog Search. Come back every Saturday for seven soup recipes to enjoy any day of the week.


My sister-in-law Joan, who lives in St. John, New Brunswick (Canada), sent today's photo of seven soup bowls and a matching tureen, with this note: "The bowls were made by Elizabeth Harrison, the daughter of Alan and Sarah Crimmins, who have been established potters in the Saint John area for quite a while. Although Elizabeth signs her married name on her works, people tend to refer to the pottery as Crimmins Pottery. The web site will show you more of their work."

If you'd like to share photos of seven soup bowls from your kitchen -- or from a friend's house, or your parents' attic, or an antique shop, or a housewares store, or a school or restaurant -- I'd love to share those photos on Saturdays.

It's easy: send one photo, of seven soup bowls or soup mugs. The bowls must all be able to be used for eating soup, and they absolutely do not have to match. Send the largest file your camera will allow; I'll size it to fit. Make sure the photo is in focus (very important). Tell me whose bowls are in the photo, or where you took the picture. If you're a blogger, I'll link to your blog.

That's it. One photo, seven soup bowls. Email to lydia AT ninecooks DOT com.

You are going to LOVE that new rice cooker. That's the one that got me using the rice cooker on a regular basis. (Now I sometimes even cook rice ahead and keep it in the freezer!)

That Black Bean and Rice Soup with Lime and Cilantro is my "go-to" soup whenever I need to take food to someone, and it's always been a hit. Plus it's one of the easiest soups ever, so thanks for including it.

Wonder what is meant by "deli ends" in the black bean soup recipe? Have never heard that term.

Kalyn, you are so right. It was love at first sight with the little rice cooker!

Lobstersquad, I love that you're making New England style chowder. In Scotland!

Teresa, my local markets sell "deli ends" -- the end cuts of roast beef or turkey breast that are too small to go through the slicer.
