Sauté the onion over medium heat until it just starts to brown. Add the garlic, sautéing for another minute.
Add the remaining ingredients (including optional crushed red pepper if desired), except for the rice. Simmer until tomatoes are soft. Smash the tomatoes with your spoon as they cook until they have turned into sauce.
Add the rice and cover the pot. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 25 minutes. If you're adding the optional beans, do so once the soup is removed from the heat.
