  • Summary

    Lamb and short-grain rice, simmered in a garlicky broth, add body to this simple Turkish soup, which is seasoned with baby leaves and served with chiles, fresh lemon juice, and olive oil. Carnaroli is an Italian rice commonly used in risotto; even when cooked in stock, it retains its shape and has a firm bite.

    Ingredients

    • 5 quarts plus 1 1/2 cups water
    • 2 lamb shanks (about 2 1/2 pounds)
    • 3 medium carrots, quartered
    • 2 medium onions, quartered
    • 2 dried bay leaves
    • 1 head garlic, cloves crushed
    • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
    • 2 cups short-grain rice, such as Carnaroli or Arborio
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • Sliced fresh chiles
    • 1 lemon, halved, for squeezing
    • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
