Ingredients:

  • 1 slice dehydrated elephant garlic
  • 1 tablespoon dehydrated onion
  • 1 tablespoon dehydrated carrots, crumbled into small pieces
  • 3 cups chicken stock (I choose to use Better Than Bouillon)
  • 1 cup orzo
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 lb pre-cooked dehydrated chicken or leftover chicken from last night's dinner! You can use canned chicken in water too – works great!
  • seasonings: Italian (dried) herbs to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon)
  • handful fresh chopped parsley
  • pepper (and salt*) to taste
  • lemon juice, or dehydrated lemon, or lemon zest




Here's How To Make This Delicious Soup:

Here's How To Make
This Delicious Soup:

  1. Use clean cold water or freshly boiled water to re-hydrate the dehydrated items above.
  2. When they are sufficiently plump, add the olive oil to a heavy pan on medium heat.
  3. Add the onion and carrots, cook for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the chicken stock, then add the garlic – crumbled finely, and the remaining ingredients - Bring to a boil and cook an additional 8 minutes.
  5. At the end of cooking, add a good squirt of lemon juice (I choose to use ReaLemon brand). We just need to detect a taste of lemon in the soup, and not overwhelm it with lemon!

*IF you need to add salt, do so, BUT be careful NOT to over-salt as the bouillon has salt in it.

Substitute White Rice For Orzo

If you prefer, you can use the zest of fresh lemons or use a dash of lemon from your dehydrated lemon stock! And yes, sin of all sins, I WAS sitting in front of the computer eating it ... and NOT at the dining table! No matter where you eat this lemony chicken orzo soup, it's always refreshing and delicious, and it's that touch of lemon that elevates it from ordinary chicken soup, to extraordinary lemon chicken soup!

NOTE: If you're out of orzo, you can very easily substitute white rice for the orzo, though the rice will need about 5 to 10 minutes more to cook through. I like orzo, though, because of the way the it plumps up so big!
