We’ve been fans of Osem for many years and the Israeli-made products it makes are some of the best food you can buy. Among its staples is tomato soup with rice. Like its cousin, chicken soup with noodles, this is fast, easy and convenient soup that is tasty.
You empty a packet into a saucepan and the add a litre of water, give it a bit of a stir, bring to the boil and then simmer for 10 minutes.
The end result? Another hot and delightful soup from what is undoubtly the kings of kosher packet soup.
The tomato is rich and full of flavour and the rice gives it some substance. Add a couple of pieces of bread and you have a hearty snack or serve it as part of a main meal and your guests will be impressed. One packet can serve up to five medium portions or three people can have a bowl and some seconds each.
Getting excited about soup may be unusual but when its good and tasty, then you want to shout it from the rooftops.
