Step 1

In a large pot, saute onion with olive oil until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the ground beef to brown, breaking it up as it cooks. Add the celery, carrot and zucchini and cook until slightly softened. Add tomato paste and cook for 1 minute.

Step 2

Stir in diced tomatoes and roughly 6 cups of cold water (you could alternatively use chicken or beef stock, alone or in combination with water). Add Worchestershire sauce, and bring soup to a boil.

Step 3

Once boiling, stir in the uncooked rice. Reduce to a simmer, and cooks at least until rice is tender-about 15 minutes. (you may simmer the soup longer to further develop the flavors.

Step 4

Just before serving, stir in parsley and vinegar. Adjust seasonings to taste with salt, pepper and chili flakes.
