About this recipe

Boost your veggie intake with this zesty spinach and orzo soup. Here's the breakdown of all that vegetable goodness... The classic combination of onion, celery, carrots, and garlic is sauteed until tender before being simmered in Aneto's rich and tasty vegetable broth. 

Heaping handfuls of baby spinach are added to the pot, right before serving, preserving as much of those wholesome nutrients as possible, and keeping everything vibrant and fresh. Chickpeas, orzo, fresh dill, and a tablespoon or two of freshly squeezed lemon juice round out the soup nicely, balancing and blending the flavors. 

If you're anything like us, we always like to have a little crust of bread nearby when spoon-deep in a soup feast. Helping us sop and soak up every last drop.
