A soup so rich and soothing, itís hard to believe thereís no dairy in it. To garnish each bowlful, sprinkle on some slivered fresh basil or grated Parmesan, or add a small dollop of pesto.
1. Heat oil in a medium-large soup pot over medium flame. Add onion, sweet pepper, and garlic; cook, stirring often, until onions are tender. Stir in diced tomatoes, pizza sauce, and 1 cup water. Bring to simmer, lower heat to medium low and cook, stirring often, 15 minutes.
2. Stir in white rice and soy milk; heat through (but donít let it boil). Stir in basil or pesto and season to taste with salt and pepper.
