and since about 1850. When you tell your kids that you are making peanut-butter soup, get ready for some wisecracks . . . and make plenty since they will love it.
In a 2-quart covered saucepan simmer the chicken stock, onion, and carrots, covered, for 30 minutes. Pure all in a food blender or food processor and return to the pan. Add the rice, salt, and cayenne pepper; cover and simmer for an additional 20 minutes, or until the rice is tender.
