Another craving recipe here, really wanted pesto but not just on pasta. This might be my new favorite soup! Really easy and delicious-great way to eat lot’s of spinach and not get cranky.
Spinach Pesto Soup
4 tablespoons basil pesto
1 onion, chopped
1 bag baby spinach, chopped
1/2 cup orzo pasta
2 (15oz) cans white beans (Great Northern)
4 cups low sodium chicken broth
salt/pepper to taste
In a soup pot saute the onions in some olive oil (2 tablespoons) for about 2 minutes or till lightly browned. Add spinach and pesto with a splash of broth, cook down for 3 minutes till spinach is fully wilting. Add the beans and rest of the broth, salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil then add the orzo and cook another 5 minutes.
