This soup is cozy yet refreshing and easy to make. We add sautéed bell pepper and onions to a chicken stock base with other heathy vegetables. The star of the show will be the orzo, which is a small grain shaped type of pasta that we will add towards the end. This delicious, balanced soup is sure to warm your heart.
Add the olive oil to a pot over medium heat. When hot, add the diced onion, stirring occasionally until the onion has softened, about 5 minutes.
Add the red bell pepper and minced garlic, and cook about 3 more minutes. Add the tomatoes and vegetable broth, then cover the pot and bring to a boil.
Once it is boiling, add the parsley, spinach and orzo. Stir well to combine, and return to a boil. Then cover the pot and reduce the heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the orzo is fully cooked for about 10 minutes.
Turn off the heat and add the salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Serve.
