This is my "”Spicy Chick’n, Orzo, & Vegetable Soup”.
I love how quick this soup cooks. Just 45 minutes to a robust vitamin and mineral packed lunch. I love to make a pot after breakfast so it will have rested and developed a full flavor by lunch time.
For the “spicy” part of the soup I use diced tomatoes with green chilies. They add a great flavor to the broth. I like using the Orzo pasta at the last 15 minutes of cooking time to add more heartiness to the soup. I also add a can of beans for fiber and protein. And lots of herbs for both flavor and nutrition.
Soups are a great way to have a filling meal that includes a ton of vegetables without a ton of calories.
