  • Pour in Roasted Red Pepper Soup, stirring to fully incorporate with rice.
  • Cover and let simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Zach: Personally, I love this soup cold - especially after it has been able to sit with all the delicious seasonings that are in the Chimichurri rice and veggies. This aspect of the soup makes it super flexible and amazing for small space cooking, you can eat it at any temperature and it stores very well!
