Farmers Market Orzo

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 4 Servings 1x


Farmers Market Orzo made with a tasty mix of veggies, orzo, and feta held together by a creamy tomato sauce. You can make this all in one pot and basically get all your servings of veggies in with one meal. Bursting with Flavor, it’s so freaking good.



  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 1 cup sliced carrots, about 3 sticks 
  • 1 cup chopped celery, about 3 stalks 
  • 1 cup diced yellow onion, about half a large onion
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 large chopped zucchini 
  • 1 diced bell pepper
  • 16oz can diced tomatoes
  • 16oz can crushed tomatoes 
  • 3 cups vegetable broth (maybe more)
  • 1 cups Orzo
  • 10 oz spinach
  •  6 oz feta cheese
  • fresh herbs (cilantro, parsley)- optional



  1. Heat olive oil in a dutch oven, or heavy bottom pot,  over medium-high. Add sliced carrots, chopped celery, and diced onions. Cook for 10 minutes or until vegetables have softened and onions have become translucent.
  2. Add minced garlic and cook for 1 minute, until fragrant.
  3. Add chopped zucchini, diced bell pepper, diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer, and cover—Cook for 10 minutes.
  4. Uncover and add orzo to the tomato mixture. Cook on medium heat until orzo is al dente, about 11-15 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent the orzo from sticking to the bottom.
  5. Remove from heat. If the sauce is too thick, add a tablespoon of vegetable broth or water one at a time. Salt and pepper to taste. Add spinach and stir until wilted. Top with feta cheese and fresh herbs.
