Vegetarian Soup: Spinach, Tomatoes, and Orzo

My mom has been a vegetarian for as long as I can remember. She often comes up with new vegetable combinations in a soup like spinach, carrots, and tomatoes. Many of her dishes are also vegan, which is great for my dairy free diet restrictions.

This simple soup is different than most of the other soups I usually make and share on CHB because it contains tomatoes. My daughters aren’t the biggest fan of cooked tomatoes, so I often avoid this ingredient. If your kids don’t like fire roasted tomatoes (like mine), try regular stewed tomatoes or diced tomatoes.

An easy addition to the soup that makes it non-vegetarian is shredded rotisserie chicken. Serve this soup with a side of toasted ciabatta bread or topped with grated cheese and croutons.
