    My family really liked it.  -  20 Sep 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The flavor is great! The method however needs some tweaking. Carrots take much longer to soften than a couple of mins. I suggest sauteing them on med-low heat for at least 6-8 mins on their own before adding the scallions and garlic. Then add the broth and simmer for 5-6 mins before adding the orzo, and continue simmering til orzo is done. Finally, add the spinach and stir til softened. Tip: if you are making the soup ahead of time, undercook the orzo slightly. Makes a nice, healthy lunch! So yummy! I'm definitely making this again!  -  29 Feb 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
