With a few cooler days after a sultry summer and football right around the corner, I am in the mood to start making soups again! This recipe also does quite well simmering in a crockpot all day. I've won several soup cookoffs with this! —CRussell

And the use of basmati rice is a nice touch too!

Mmm, yum! Mulligutawney is one of the all-time under-appreciated soups, in my opinion. That's such a good idea, to add some apple. I really like that you cook the rice in the flavored broth, too. Nice!!! ;o)
