"After the soup, they eat rice."
Translation:Na de soep eten ze rijst.

Because of the Dutch word-order with a prepositional phrase. You can say:
- Ze eten rijst na de soep. Here the order is clear [Subject + Verb + Rest]
- Na de soep eten ze rijst. When something (anything) comes at the beginning of a sentence, the subject goes after the verb [Something (adverb, prepositional phrase...) + Verb + Subject + Rest]
We say in general that the verb goes always at the second position.
