About seven years ago we planted a Meyer Lemon tree on our property. It was the first citrus we planted after purchasing our house and remains my favorite citrus tree today. This year is our best season to date! We probably have close to 500 lemons on one tree. I’ve posted a few little videos on my Instagram stories to show you all of the lemons. Best of all, they have some of the best flavor and are packed with juice. My goal for each day is to use as many lemons as possible so I’ve come up with some tasty combinations. One Pot Lemon Chicken Tortellini Soup with Greens is inspired by homemade chicken noodle soup but tastes even better. The fresh lemon flavor and nutritious greens create a warm and comforting meal that kids and adults love!

For this recipe, I used almost an entire container of organicgirl SUPER SPINACH! You don’t have to use Meyer lemons like I did. Any fresh lemon will work well. It’s the perfect comfort food and is great for leftovers during the week. Best of all, it cooks in one pot in under 30 minutes!

  1. This is probably a dumb question but I’m fairly new to cooking and have to ask, the recipe states to add the tortellini and cook according to package instructions. My tortellini suggests cooking in water so my question is, do I add the extra water to the pot? Or just pour the tortellini in the broth and cook as is, no water added? Thank you.

    • Good question! You just add the fresh or frozen tortellini to the pot with the broth and cook for as long as it says on the package. I will clarify the recipe so that’s more clear. Enjoy!

  2. Great recipe. I love it. I had a bowl for lunch. So tasty.

  3. I just got done making this soup and it was so good. Its a keeper. I only deviated from the rrcipe with cheese tortellini. I love it!

  4. Your soup looks fantastic, I just love this combination of flavor! Hope you are having a great week and thanks so much for sharing your awesome post with us at Full Plate Thursday. We look forward to seeing you again real soon!
