Easy Tomato Florentine Soup

This is a super easy tomato florentine soup that uses pre-made tomato soup, with beans, orzo, and spinach to make it a complete meal.  So yummy and goes great with some crusty bread, or even grilled cheese if you want to induldge! 
Note:  you can also subsitute any other small pasta or grain for the orzo.

Printable Recipe


½ cup dry orzo
1 32oz carton tomato soup (I recommend Imagine Creamy Tomato - its non-dairy too)
1 15oz can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups fresh baby spinach

Basil oil for garnish (optional)

1 frozen basil cube, thawed
2 tsp olive oil


Cook orzo according to package (I recommend slightly under cooking), drain and set aside.

In a small dish mix basil and olive oil, set aside.

Add tomato soup to a pot with cannellini beans and cook until heated through. Add spinach and orzo and cook until spinach is wilted. Remove from heat.

To serve ladle into bowls and with a small spoon, drizzle the basil oil in the over the center of each bowl (this will make it look like something out of a restaurant). Take a moment to look at it and say “wow, that’s so pretty”, then eat!
