Hi guys, this recipe is another one of those that I wanted to see if I can come up with my own version of and I did. This soup is similar to the one you may find in a well know sandwich shop. I put my own twist on this recipe and it came out great.
With this kind of recipe that using flour and rice, you have to keep in mind that both of these are thickening agents, so you will need to be careful of how much of each ingredient you use. I seen lots of recipe like this using a 1/2 cup of flour which I thought was to much. I used 3 tablespoons and mine was on the thick side, so use your best judgement.
This recipe is definitely a keeper for my family. I also have a video on my channel for this recipe as well Ruthycancook, so feel free to check out as well.
