    I've never cooked with grapeseek oil. Any reason why this is used instead of other oils?

    This is my go-to recipe for this soul-soothing soup. Simple and delicious, the bright lemony flavor is a hit with anyone who tries it.

    Orzo is tiny pasta and only takes minutes to cook. Don't cook it under pressure. Add it instead in the reboil step near the end before you add the cream in.

    This soup was really tasty. It had a nice lemon flavor. The orzo came out a bit too soft. I followed the recipe exactly, excep I used fresh baby spinach instead of frozen. I will definitely make it again.
