  • 6 cup(s) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2/3 cup(s) uncooked orzo
  • 1 large uncooked carrot(s), diced
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) uncooked asparagus, sliced diagonally in bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup(s) frozen green peas
  • 4 medium uncooked scallion(s), sliced
  • 1/3 cup(s) dill, fresh, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp table salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground, or to taste



Step 1

1. Bring broth to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat.
2. Add orzo and carrots; boil 7 minutes.
3. Add asparagus and frozen peas; boil until orzo and vegetables are tender, about 3 minutes.
4. Remove from heat; stir in scallions, dill, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Yields about 1 cup per serving.

A few handfuls of fresh baby spinach stirred in at the end of cooking would be a nice addition to this soup.

Change up the flavor by substituting fresh parsley for the dill and serving sprinkled with grated Parmesan cheese (could affect PointsPlus value).
