Spinach Tomato Orzo Soup

Spinach Tomato Orzo Soup @EclecticEveryday

I made this vegetarian soup a few nights ago. I had been so busy all day, and forgot to take anything out to thaw. I made this soup by just using pantry staples I had in hand. It was quick, easy and satisfying.

This recipe was created for Babble’s Family Kitchen.

    I made this tonight. It was very easy and didn’t require much babysitting which is always a plus after a long day, but I found it to be on the bland side. It definitely has potential; nothing some seasonings couldn’t accomplish.

    This was a very wonderful soup…. with anything you can put your spin on it…. I put a pinch of curry and red paper flakes to give it that kick…..
