Hearty ChickN Veg Soup + ChickN Broth Powder + Link to gluten-free Orzo

When hubby came down with a head cold I made this soup using ingredients I happened to have in hand.

The onion, choy and mushroom powder are essential for creating a hearty and satisfying umami flavor. Other than that, use whatever fresh or frozen veg you happen to have on hand


• 1 medium onion, diced

• 1 Portobello mushroom cap, quartered and sliced

• 3 small organic carrots, sliced

• 1 medium Shanghai Choy or Bok Choy, quartered and thinly sliced

• 1/4 cup chickN broth powder

• 1/4 cup shiitake mushroom powder (dried Shanghai mushrooms, processed in food processor to a fine powder)

• 1/4 cup gluten-free orzo or similar

• 2 cups water


1. Heat medium sauce pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, reduce heat to medium, cover and cook 1-2 minutes until fragrant

2. Add remaining veg, cover and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally

3. Add both powders and orzo, stir until well incorporated. Cover and cook 2-3 minutes

4. Add water, stir, bring to a simmer and cook uncovered about 10 minutes or until orzo is done
