Bring 1 cup chicken broth to a boil. Add in 1 cup minute rice, cover and turn off heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork.
Put olive oil into a pan and cook onion and garlic until onion softens.

If you want to add some vegetables and keep the soup easy and quick I would recommend adding in some frozen vegetables such as a carrot and pea mixture or frozen broccoli or some fresh mushrooms.Can I use other rice? Minute rice just makes the soup quicker to put together but if you prefer to use regular rice that is fine. I like to use basmati or jasmine rice and cook it in the Instant Pot if not using Minute Rice.
