- Yield: 4 Servings
- Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
- Cooking Time: 27 Minutes
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 rib celery, thinly sliced
- 1 medium carrot, thinly sliced
- 1 small yellow onion, finely diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- ⅓ cup uncooked orzo noodles
- 4 cups
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
- 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
How to Make It
- To a medium saucepan set over medium heat, add the olive oil. Add the celery, carrot, and onion. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper, and cook until the vegetables are tender, and the onion is translucent, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and stir to combine, cooking just an additional minute longer (be careful not to burn the garlic).
- Add the orzo to the saucepan and cook until the pasta just begins to brown and toast, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil, about 7 minutes.
- Reduce the heat and let the soup simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the noodles are tender.
- Stir in the fresh parsley and squeeze in the lemon juice just before serving.
