Quick Vegie-Rice Soup!!!

Provided there is leftover rice in the rice cooker, this meal is a tasty whizz for someone needing time to eat nutritously without much time in the kitchen. Prep is about 20 minutes.
Quick Vegie-Rice Soup

1 cup leftover rice
2 1/2 - cups water
1 - 1 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 small onion, sliced thinly
3 small cloves garlic, sliced thinly
3 young stalks celery
6 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 fistful fresh parsley
sea salt

While bringing the water to a boil, slice in the onion and garlic and add in the coconut oil. When the onion starts to become tender, add in the rice and let simmer-boil for 4 minutes. Meanwhile, thinly slice up the celery stems, and in a different bowl, chopped the parsley and tomatoes. When the rice is well-heated and becoming softer (about 5 minutes later), add in the celery. Wait 3-4 minutes then add in the parsley and tomatoes and turn off the heat. Serve within minutes. The colors will be vibrant and the flavors will be at their peak ... do not overcook or wait too long to serve. The flavors die. Add in a dash of cumin, turmeric and sea salt to taste.
