Step 1

In a large pot over a medium-high flame, heat the oil. Add the onion and garlic and saute until the onions are soft and translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the broth, tomatoes, orzo, red pepper flakes, black pepper and water. Bring the soup to a simmer and cook until the pasta is tender, about 6 minutes.

Add the beans and greens, then cook, stirring often, until the greens are tender, about 5 more minutes.
