Easy Risoni Soup Recipe

This humble soup is perfect for a quick, light meal. Taking five minutes to prepare and only fifteen minutes to cook, Easy Risoni Soup is a recipe that can be whipped up using ingredients you’ll likely have on hand in your kitchen. Browning the risoni – short-cut Italian pasta with a texture similar to rice – with butter and onion adds a delicious warmth and aroma to the dish. Brown onions are a healthy way of adding flavour to a recipe, and contain sulfur compounds which can lower cholesterol and promote heart health.

A simple meal and a pleasure to eat, this soup also makes an excellent base for leftover meats – serve with cooked shredded chicken or bite-sized lamb chunks for added flavour.
