Copycat Panera Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup {Pinterest Success 37}




I usually don't think of soup as a summer meal. I tend to make it as a comfort food on cold and rainy days or in the depths of winter. But, when I saw this pin for Copycat Panera Lemon Orzo Soup I thought it would be a light and delicious summer soup to try. The fresh lemon flavor, as well as the fresh spinach, gives it the perfect seasonal twist.



And, who says you can't enjoy a bowl of soup while sitting on the patio in the summer? With a glass of ice cold iced tea, it made a very nice and light lunch on a sunny summer afternoon.

Avgolemono (Greek Lemon Rice Soup) is a staple of our Detroit area Coney Island Restaurants (our version of diners) and the flavors in this soup are very similar. I have never tried to replicate this special soup, even though it is a favorite. Now that I have found this delicious soup recipe, there is no need to try.
