Slow Cooker Vegetable Orzo

I started to make my Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup. Then I decided I wanted make it a little heartier by adding some orzo. Because I added a full package of orzo it soaked up the liquid and turned my Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup into Slow Cooker Vegetable Orzo. So easy to make and very tasty.

  • 5 oz fresh baby spinach
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled, diced
  • 2 ribs celery, diced
  • 1 onion, large, diced
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 4 c vegetable broth
  • 28 oz diced tomatoes, canned
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp basil, dried
  • 1 tsp oregano, dried
  • 12 oz orzo (gluten-free)

Place ingredients in a slow cooker and stir. Cover and cook on high power for 5 hours. After 3-4 hours add the orzo. Stir orzo thoroughly. Stir all of the ingredients occasionally.
