Italian Orzo Soup


  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 6 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 (15 oz) can 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
  • Sea salt & pepper, to taste
  • Parmesan cheese for garnish


  1. Heat oil in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Add onion & sauté until soft. Add carrots, celery & garlic and sauté until garlic is fragrant.
  2. Add stock, tomatoes, orzo & spices. Stir to combine. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Add sea salt & pepper, to taste.
  3. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 – 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is al dente.
  4. When ready to serve, ladle a portion in a bowl and add spinach on top and gently stir in. I always add the spinach into each individual serving so it stays fresh & bright.
  5. Serve warm. Garnish with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
