This is a soup to warm the soul. It’s light, quick and super clean eating. You can certainly leave the orzo out if you like. I use whole-wheat orzo, and I’m okay with that! 🙂 Do I really need to remind you to use fresh lemon juice for this? If so, then use fresh lemon juice. There are no exceptions. (another :).
*why parm rind? It’s adds a depth of flavor that makes this soup rich but still light. Omit if you don’t have one, but start saving them in your freezer!
**Roasted Chicken is definitely something to add to your repertoire!
Make this vegetarian by using white beans (see tuscan bean soup for how to use dried beans) in place of the chicken.
Use cooked brown rice in place of the orzo for a gluten-free soup.
Please use fresh lemons, the bottled stuff needs to just stay in the bottle.
