Supergreen Orzo Soup
Print Recipe
This incredibly nutritious soup tastes great and is easy to make! This recipe uses a slow cooker, but you could just simmer in a large pan for about 1hr instead if you don't have one. I love the slow cooker because you can just chuck in the ingredients and leave it whilst you do other things! It's very hard to over-cook something in a slow cooker. This yields about 6 generous servings, so prepare to freeze some or reduce the recipe if you don't want so much!

Recipe Notes

I like mushrooms in this recipe, but it works equally well with fried tofu. Don't be afraid of subbing any of the vegetable ingredients the recipe calls for—use any type of veg you want!
