    My soup didn’t turn out very soupy… The rice made it almost glue-like. I’ll probably make the rice separate if I do this one again. Unless there is better advice? I might cut the dill and salt a bit too.

    Excellent soup! My son, who was very sick last week and lost his sense of smell (tested negative for Covid), said in the afternoon “man, what are you making for dinner, it smells so good”. My immediate reply was “soup”. But then we both realized he could smell and were so excited we started celebrating. This soup tasted as good as it made the house smell. So yummy and delicious.

    Also, I have NEVER added white rice directly into any soup in the crock pot before. My concern was it would be too soft or mushy or make the soup too starchy. But this was not the case with this recipe. It was the perfect balance and tasted incredible. Thank goodness because the last thing I needed was to disappoint a sick kid.

    Two thumbs up on this recipe.
