ONE-POT ORZO VEGETABLE SOUP


ONE-POT ORZO VEGETABLE SOUP



This scrumptious soup is a small-batch version of Ali’s Italian Orzo Spinach Soup on Gimme Some Oven that I tweaked based on the ingredients I had handy! The original recipe makes a LOT of soup but with Paul spending more and more time in Texas lately I don’t quite need a boatload of soup to slurp by myself.

Ingredients

  • 1 TBSP olive oil, avocado oil, or butter
  • 1 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup diced carrots
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 3 cups vegetable stock or chicken stock
  • 1 cup canned diced or crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2-3/4 cup orzo pasta
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/8 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/8 tsp dried rosemary
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • salt and black pepper to taste
