Sausage Rice Tomato Soup

One of the easiest things to learn to make is a soup. As we approached colder months, it made sense to have some soups in our toolkit as well. However, long simmering soups like chili won’t work because of the patience needed and the attention to the stove. So this soup is created with simple tasty ingredients that come together in a short time period of time.

Makes 3 servings


3 – 4 quart pot and cooking spoon

Knife and cutting board



  • 1 onion
  • ½ pound (8 ounces) Polish sausage (Kielbasa)
  • 5 ounce can of diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups broth (chicken or vegetable)
  • ½ cup white rice

  • In a small bowl, place
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoon pepper
    • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon cooking oil


  • Chop onion
  • Cut sausage into bite size pieces
  • Blend tomatoes in blender until smooth


  1. Heat pot over medium. When hot, add oil to pot.
  2. Cook onions 3 minutes in pot.
  3. To onions, add
    1. Sausage
    2. Seasonings
  4. Cook for 2 minutes; stir all of the time.
  5. To pot, add
    1. Broth
    2. Tomatoes
    3. Rice

  1. Do you think this could be done in a crock pot? I could make this as a snack for the kids at school but just cook it in the crock pot. Or even a lunch some day when the kids have a half day and the teachers need a lunch. Does the sausage need to be cooked ahead of time?

    1. As the unique abilities of my teenagers require recipes that do not overtax the attention, this is a quick soup. I don’t know that it is very conducive to a crockpot or whether it is necessary.
