Spinach Beef With Orzo

If you have a busy schedule, this is an idea for you where you can make spinach ground beef as the main entree paired with orzo (ex: for lunch) and then serve as soft tacos (for dinner).

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 6 people lunch and dinner



  1. Chop white onions, garlic and carrots.
  2. Cook orzo with water over stove. Follow the package instructions.
  3. Add dash of olive oil in pan. Lightly sauté carrots over medium heat then set aside.
  4. Over medium heat, add olive oil, white onions and saute until lightly caramelized.
  5. Now add your ground beef using your spatula break it up as it cooks.
  6. Add spinach, garlic and mix well then cook until ready. Optional: You can drain the liquid or keep it.
  7. Once the orzo is completed cooking, you can toss half with spinach and beef mixture for lunch. Optional: Top off with some sautéed carrots.
  8. As a second meal (for dinner), you can drain the meat and wrap in your choice of tortilla, I used soft flour tortilla. Add your choice of toppings inside, I used sliced avocados & sautéed carrots.
