OFF HEAT, STIR IN:
You can easily make this recipe vegetarian or vegan by swapping the chicken broth for vegetable broth, and the butter for olive oil or vegan butter.
Sauté onion in oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat until softened, 3–5 minutes. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, 1 minute.
Add orzo and stir to coat; cook 1–2 minutes. Stir in broth and water, stirring often until liquid is absorbed and orzo is cooked, 9–10 minutes.
Off heat, stir in spinach, zest, butter, salt, pepper, and nutmeg until spinach wilts.
