Before you start

Large pot with a lid | Kettle boiled

Prepare the vegetables

  • Peel and finely chop the onion, garlic
  • Peel the carrot and cut into rounds
  • Roughly chop the celery

For the broth

  • Heat the olive oil In a large saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, add the onion, carrots, celery, garlic and a big pinch of salt and saute for 6-8 minutes until the onion is translucent. Add the oregano, sundried tomato paste and chilli flakes and saute for another minute. Add the orzo, vegetable stock and 1.2 litres of boiling water. Bring the soup to the boil then cover and simmer for about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally so that the orzo doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan
