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!
