An easy, filling and delicious soup
I’ve been trying to cook soup more for easy lunches as it’s so handy to make in big batches and just reheat, but I do often find that I’m hungry an hour after eating it unless I’ve had bread with it! That’s why I tried out this tomato, basil and orzo soup. The orzo just adds a little more texture and filling power.
I nearly always use chopped tomatoes in soups, as generally I don’t have the time to roast fresh tomatoes and I think the results using chopped are often just as good, if not better!
A real key to good tasting tomato soup is getting the level of salt right- once it’s blended try it, and if it tastes a little dull, try adding a few more grinds of salt- it’s amazing what a difference it makes when you get it just right- it just gives it that lift and brings out all of the flavours!
