Ingredients

    1.5 tablespoons Olive oil
    1 cup leek
    1 large red bell (capsicum) peppers
    3 cloves garlic
    6 cups vegetable bouillon
    1 (16 oz) can Italian-Style tomatoes, drained
    cup orzo
    6 oz. fresh spinach
    cup parsley, chopped
    1 large lemon, juiced
    1 pinch salt
    1 pinch pepper

Directions

Heat the oil in a soup pot. Add the leek and saute over medium heat until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the red pepper and garlic and saute the vegetables for another 5 to 8 minutes, or until golden and the pepper softens.

Add the bouillon. Drain the liquid from the canned tomatoes into the soup pot, then chop the tomatoes finely before adding to the soup. Bring to a rapid simmer, then lower the heat. Cover and simmer gently for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the orzo in a separate saucepan until al dente, then drain. Add the cooked orzo to the soup along with the spinach and herbs.

Stir in the lemon juice. If the soup is too dense, add a small amount of water. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer over very low heat until well heated through then serve.
