6 cups Water + 2 chicken broth cubes
Oregano, rosemary, thyme, a pinch of each

Heat oil in a pan, add onions garlic and soy sauce, stir for 4 minutes until gold in color and sprinkle with brown sugar (optional but I love the caramelized hint of sugar).
Add diced celery and carrots, stir for 4 minutes.

Reduce heat, uncover, add the orzo pasta and simmer while stirring lightly but continuously for 10 minutes, add spinach for an additional 2 minutes.
