I'm giving this four stars, only because I made enough changes to make it so. This would be mediocre, at best, without the changes. After all, it's still just doctored up canned soup. I used fresh carrots rather than canned, added mushrooms, cooked crumbled bacon,fresh minced garlic and a glug of white wine. This was way too thick for my liking, but was easily remedied by throwing in some chicken stock. The soaking step for the rice simply isn't necessary---just cook it beforehand as the package directs and add it at the end. The final result was very good, but it was a lot of tinkering around for what was still canned soup. I would have been better off, and with the same amount of work, just making the darned soup from scratch.
