Vegetarian Orzo and Spinach Soup

Vegetarian Orzo Spinach Soup in Bread Bowl

If you are looking for a healthy vegetarian soup for a main course, look no more! I made this for my boyfriend’s vegetarian sister and we all loved it! I actually doubled the batch! To be completely honest, my boyfriend added a little spice to his (meat) but his sister enjoyed it as is and so did I. I’m sure you will too!

Ingredients:

  • 1 small white onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • Vegetarian Soup Recipe6 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 (14-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups orzo pasta
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 4 cups loosely-packed spinach
  • salt and black pepper

Directions:

Spray bottom of large pot.
Dice onions and place in a large pot on medium heat.
Dice carrots and celery and add to pot.
Mince garlic and add to pot.
Add 6 cups of vegetable stock.
Add fire roasted diced tomatoes and orzo.
Add thyme, oregano and rosemary.
Bring to a boil and then simmer for 10 minutes, until orzo is cooked.
Add spinach and cook for 2 minutes.

Notes:

  • My vegetable stock was unsalted so I added garlic salt and a pepper medley to mine to bring out the flavors.
  • My boyfriend wanted meat so he added precooked Jimmy Dean turkey sausage.

This meal was quick and enjoyable for everyone. One tip I have is to invest in a food chopper! I use mine all the time for chopping, dicing, and mincing and it saves SO much time!
