Holly's Chicken and Brown Rice Soup

This is my sister Holly's recipe. It's a tasty, healthy, and easy family dinner.

2 c carrots, chopped
2 c celery, chopped
1 medium onion, diced
1 tsp garlic, minced
2 cans chicken, drained (fresh works too)
1 c brown rice
chicken broth (I used 3 cans)
1 bay leaf
1/2 tbsp poultry seasoning
extra virgin olive oil
salt & pepper

Cook brown rice (1 c rice to 2 1/2 c water or broth for approximately 45 minutes). Heat a soup pot with extra virgin olive oil. Add veggies and seasonings and cook until tender. Add chicken, rice, and chicken broth. Salt and pepper to taste and simmer.

Serve with rolls, or bread and butter, and a green salad.

I give this recipe 3 stars.

(I often post recipes on our family blog; hope it's not redundant to post them again here!)
