30 Minute Orzo Garden Vegetable Soup...

Fall to me is enjoying real life again, with cozy routines, days filled with purpose and a warm kitchen. Cooking up comfort food that lures the family to the table, no matter what else is going on, such as with a hearty soup full of colourful garden vegetables and orzo. This is a great way to use up leftover vegetables in your fridge and cupboards. Vegetable broth cubes are convenient to use at a pinch and Herbamare's provide a complimentary flavour as a light soup base to the fresh vegetables being added. I love that Herbamare also offers a low sodium option and that their product is organic, vegan and GMO-free. Serve it as a side to a dinner sandwich or add beans and shredded cheese and make it a true meal-in-one!

30 Minute Orzo Garden Vegetable Soup
Makes 6 servings

1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 carrot, chopped
1 celery, peeled and chopped
1 zucchini, sliced and quartered
1 cup orzo pasta
6 cups water
3 cubes A. Vogel Herbamare® Low Sodium Vegetable Broth
1 tomato, chopped
2 handfuls spinach, chopped
fresh dill, chopped

Heat the olive oil in a pot and sauté the onion, garlic, celery and carrots until tender, about 10 minutes. Add the zucchini and continue to sauté for five more minutes. Unwrap and add the broth cubes, stir to dissolve and while the soup is simmering cook the orzo pasta according to the package and drain. Add the tomatoes and let simmer for two more minutes. Stir in the spinach and orzo. Garnish with dill and serve hot.

For the soup lover, you can easily double this recipe and makes great leftovers.

Nothing better than soup comfort to welcome in the first days of Fall! 

"We want seconds and thirds mom!!" Music to a mom's ears...

Herbamare vegetable broth cubes are convenient to use and dissolve easily. It would provide a lovely depth of tasty vegetable flavours-- slightly sweet and mainly savoury as a base to build up soups, risottos and sauces. For other inspirations using these broth cubes follow #howdoyouherbamare.
