This is our take on a Minestrone, using orzo as the pasta as it doesn’t swell so much when cooking. Feel free to change up the greens to whatever is in season.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and diced


Heat the oil in a pot on a medium heat. When it’s hot, add the onion, carrot, garlic, celery and potatoes and cook, stirring, for 10 minutes until they soften. Turn the heat down a bit if they start to brown.

Add in the finely chopped cabbage or kale, tinned and fresh tomatoes, orzo and oregano and continue to cook for a further 5 minutes.
