I am a texture girl. I love texture in my clothes, my hair, and most importantly my food. I had the pleasure to come across a great recipe over at Tasty Kitchen, Spinach Lemon Orzo Soup, and I knew right away I had to make it. Namely because it had Orzo in it. Orzo falls into my “Food textures That I Love” category, and any recipe that calls for it has me game to try it.
If you’ve never tried orzo, you need to take your crazy self to the store and buy some right now. What is orzo like you may say? For me, it’s as if pasta and rice came together and had a delicious baby. I can’t really say any more than that.
This soup was so good, with the bright flavor from the lemons and the comforting goodness of a (slightly spicy) chicken broth. You can find the recipe and my guest post for this recipe on the Tasty Kitchen Blog here.
