This was a I’m-not-feeling-well-and-want-something-comforting-that-doesn’t-involve-going-to-the-store-or-anything-spicy-because-my-tummy-hurts creation.
The orzo here is optional; I cooked it separately for storage reasons and may actually like the soup better without it.
2 quarts chicken or turkey stock, preferably homemade
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 stalks carrot, chopped
like 1/3 package frozen spinach, thawed
about 1.5 cups cooked turkey meat
1 can white beans, drained
1/4 package orzo, cooked (optional)
a bit of chopped cilantro
1 onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 tbsp or so olive oil
Heat oil in pan. Sautee onion, garlic, carrot and celery briefly. Add chicken broth, spinach, turkey meat and beans and heat through and simmer for a bit.
Add cooked orzo, if desired, and heat through. Garnish with cilantro.
