Tomato Basil Soup

This is probably my favorite soup in the world. It is healthy and so delicious. Plus it's super easy!

Tomato Basil Soup
2 medium onions, chopped
4-5 (15 oz) cans stewed tomatoes, pureed
1/3 c. vegetable base (or chicken base)
4 quarts water
5 T. basil
1 t. oregano
1/2 t. thyme
1/2 t. pepper
1 T. garlic powder (or a few garlic cloves, minced)
1 1/2 c. raw brown rice 
In a very large pot, saute the onions in olive oil. Pour in all the ingredients, except for the rice. Stir well. Mix in the rice. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 30-45 minutes or until rice is done. When serving, top with fresh Parmesan. (Note: this recipe makes a lot of soup! When I made this, I divided it by a fourth and it made about 3-4 servings.)
