Vegetable Rice Soup

If you have long days, where it is hot and you lose a lot of hydration through sweating, a mug of soup can go far to restore you in the evening. Sip on it as an appetizer, to share with a hiking partner, or have it as a main dish. This recipe is FBC friendly (Freezer Bag Cooking) and has directions for all cooking methods.
The called for olive oil can be left out, but it provides a more filling soup and gives extra calories. This soup is vegetarian friendly.
