Tomato, basil & orzo soup
An easy, filling and delicious soup
TOMATO, BASIL AND ORZO 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!
