Brown jasmine is a slender, aromatic, and moist long-grain rice that cooks in about 30 minutes. Look for prepackaged organic varieties to avoid cross-contamination. If you’re not sensitive to dairy, stir Romano cheese into the soup at the end of cooking.


  1. Heat olive oil in a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat. Stir in onion; cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in garlic, Italian herbs, and crushed red pepper; cook for 30 seconds or more. Stir in vinegar and cook until it evaporates, about 30 seconds.
  2. Stir in broth, tomatoes (with liquid), water, and rice. Bring to boil over high heat. Cover and cook over medium heat for 30-40 minutes.
  3. Stir in beans and olives. Cover and cook until rice is tender, 2 minutes or more. Stir in spinach, red bell pepper, and salt to taste. Cook over medium heat, uncovered, until spinach is tender, about 1 minute.
  4. Turn off heat. Stir in black pepper and rosemary to taste.
