Vegetable, White Bean, and Orzo Soup

Vegetable, White Bean, and Orzo Soup

by Pam on September 17, 2014

Recipe revisited… I spent the day with my curtains closed and ice packs on my head due to an excruciating headache that has left me useless. Obviously, I am not able to cook a new recipe tonight so I thought I would re-post one that I’ve been craving. This soup is simple to make and is comforting, healthy, and delicious. I hope to be back to cooking tomorrow.

 

Originally posted April 1, 2011:

I had a busy day and didn’t have a lot of time to make dinner so I decided to use up what I had on hand and make a big pot of soup. I found carrots, zucchini, squash, spinach, and onion in the refrigerator (and luckily my neighbor had some celery I could have – thanks Cheryl!). I found some white beans and orzo in the cupboard and decided to throw them in the soup too. It was quick and super easy to make and tasted fantastic. I served my soup with feta cheese sprinkled on top but my kids preferred it without cheese.

Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, celery, dried basil, and oregano. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5-6 minutes; add the minced garlic and cook for one more minute, stirring constantly. Add the broth, tomatoes, beans, and sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste then cover with a lid and cook for 30-40 minutes, or until the veggies are tender. Add orzo and cook for 8 minutes then add the zucchini, yellow squash, and spinach. Taste and re-season if needed. Cook for 2 minutes then ladle into bowls. Top each bowl of soup with feta cheese and serve immediately. Enjoy.
