I know with the warm weather, soup is probably the last thing on your mind. But, I literally can have soup any time of the year. This one-pot orzo vegetable soup is one I’ve been making for over a year and it’s so good! I found the recipe on Pinterest and I pretty much use the exact recipe. The only change I make is that I add in extra orzo, because who doesn’t love orzo? So my soup has less liquid and more orzo. I also adjust the recipe based on how much I want to make.
For the recipe you’ll need:
- olive oil
- yellow onion
- vegetable or chicken stock (I use chicken broth)
- diced or crushed tomatoes
- dried thyme
- dried oregano
- dried rosemary
- fresh spinach
- salt & pepper
In a large pot, heat up some oil and sauté the onions until they’re tender and then add in the carrots, celery, and garlic. After a few minutes, add in your stock or broth, tomatoes, orzo, thyme, oregano, and rosemary. Stir to combine and after it simmers, lower the heat to medium-low and simmer for another 10 minutes. When you’re satisfied with the tenderness of the vegetables and orzo, add in the spinach. The spinach should wilt pretty quickly. Then you’re good to go! You can top it with cheese, croutons, roasted chickpeas, basil, anything you you want!
This soup is so delicious and comforting. And it’s easy clean-up too since it’s a one-pot meal!
I’ll sometime hav the soup on its own, sometimes with a grilled cheese, sometimes with some sort of leftover meat on the side. The possibilities are endless!
