Lemon~ meatloaf & zucchini soup

Yield: 2 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 teaspoons Olive oil
¼ cup Chopped onion
2 cups Low sodium chicken broth
½ teaspoon Dried oregano
1 tablespoon Lemon
¼ cup Instant rice
1 small Zucchini -- thinly sliced
\N \N Pepper
1 slice Leftover meatloaf

Chop ¼ section of a medium, yellow, onion. Heat the oil and cook the onion until soft and just beginning to brown, about 8 minutes, maximum. Add 2 to 2-½ cups of canned chicken broth (reduced sodium and/or reduced fat). Add the oregano, rubbing it between the palms as you add it. Remove the rind from a lemon wedge (1/8th whole) and add that. Add the ('ready in 5-minutes' kind of...) rice. Simmer about 5 minutes, stirring (rice will be a little under done); taste and adjust lemon, oregano, pepper, if needed. Add zucchini, separating slices as you add. Simmer about 2 minutes. Cut leftover meatloaf into bite-sized pieces and add that. Warm through. Serve with a multigrain oat bran bread.
