Garden Vegetables With Brown Rice

2 Medium potatoes (sliced)
1 Medium carrot (sliced)
1/2 lb. Fresh string beans
1/2 Medium onion
1 Medium zucchini squash
1 Lg. Stalk of celery
2 Medium tomatoes
1/4 Bell Pepper
1/2 c. Brown rice
3 Cloves garlic
 1. Dice all vegetables and place in a covered saucepan with 5 cups spring water or stock.
 2. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Add rice (whole brown rice) and spices of your choice. I use a dash of light salt, cilantro (coriander), thyme, sweet basil, marjoram, and 1/4 cup of salsa. You may substitute other grains such as barley, millet, etc. Simmer until the rice is done.
   This soup is wonderful for weight reduction. It is high in vitamins, minerals, and is low in calories and economical to make.
