DIRECTIONS

  • Shell and devein the shrimp. With a towel, pat thoroughly dry. Chop in a food processor or blender. Blend in the egg whites, cheeses, garlic and cornstarch until it becomes a paste-like consistency. Roll into 1-inch balls. (Step #1 can be done in advance of meal time.).
  • In a large saucepan, heat chicken broth on high. As soon as it starts boiling, carefully drop in shrimp balls one by one. Stir in orzo, lemon juice and chick peas. The liquid will stop boiling but as soon as it starts again, reduce heat to medium. Add basil. Cook for 10 minutes or until orzo is tender.
