  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 oz dried porcini mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 oz lean ground pork
  • 1 large zucchini, diced into ¼-inch pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 oz white mushrooms, sliced
  • 10 oz cremini mushrooms (or brown mushrooms), sliced
  • 1 4-oz pkg gourmet mixed mushrooms (blend of portobellos, cremini, oysters and shiitakes), sliced
  • 4 tbsp white whole-wheat flour
  • 6 stalks green onion, green and white parts chopped
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 tsp orange zest
  • 1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 4 cups cooked whole-wheat orzo


  1. In a small saucepan, bring broth to a boil on high heat. Add porcini mushrooms and simmer for 4 minutes. Strain mushrooms, reserving liquid. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat oil on medium-high. Add pork, stirring to break up meat. Cook until brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add zucchini and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. Once zucchini is soft and begins to release liquid, add white, cremini and gourmet mushrooms. Cover and cook for about 4 minutes, until mushrooms begin to release liquid.
  3. Stir in flour and cook, uncovered, for another 2 minutes. Add reserved porcini cooking liquid and bring to a boil. Mix in onion, thyme, orange zest, soy sauce, pepper, salt and porcini mushrooms. Simmer on medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. To serve, place ½ cup orzo in a soup bowl and top with 1 cup mushroom ragout.
