The name of this recipe got my attention as well. Rice in soup is something I'll be trying very soon because I'm seeing it in quite a few recipes. I heard of adding rice to soup in Surinam many years ago but never again until now. It's like using barley in soup since the grains are similar in size.

I have to say, I did a couple of double takes when I saw the name of your recipe...but after seeing the ingredients, it all made sense. Being a soup lover, this is something I'd love to try but am not really too familiar with cooking with wine. Would it alter the recipe if I didn't use it...or is there another substitute for the wine I could use instead?
