Recipe By: DeLallo

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoons DeLallo Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 carrots, peeled and diced
  • half of an onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8-10 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup DeLallo Whole-Wheat Orzo
  • 3-ish cups cooked chicken (I use shredded rotisserie chicken)
  • 3 eggs
  • juice of 3-4 lemons (about 1/2 cup)
  • a handful of fresh spinach
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • lots of freshly ground pepper
  • as much fresh dill as you can handle

Directions

  • Base: Heat large soup pot over medium heat. Add the olive oil. Add the carrots, onion, and garlic. Saute until fragrant and tender, about 10 minutes. (Be careful not to burn the garlic.)
  • Orzo: Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Add the orzo and cook for a few minutes until softened. Stir in the chicken and remove from heat.
  • Eggs: Whisk the eggs and lemon juice together in a small bowl. The idea here is to warm up the egg mixture slowly (without scrambling the eggs). Slowly add a scoop of the soup into the egg mixture. Then add your warmed egg mixture back to the soup pot – slowly, slowly, slowly, stirring constantly, until smooth and creamy.
  • Final touches: Finish by stirring in your spinach, salt, pepper, and dill and adjust seasonings to taste!
