1/4 c long grain white rice
1/2 c low-fat yogurt
2 Tbsp lemon juice

Try using brown rice or wild rice instead of long grain white rice for a nuttier flavor - but leave extra time: brown rice and wild rice take about twice as long to cook through than white rice.

A wonderful soup any time, but particularly comforting during cold and flu season...Go go vitamin C!
