Creamy Tomato Orzo Soup with Greek Yogurt and Basil

December 7, 2013

Winter soups are so comforting and warming, but it’s often hard to find fresh and seasonal ingredients that don’t get repetitive. That’s why we enjoy a soup recipe that uses canned or otherwise year-round ingredients, and transforms them into something totally delicious and fresh. This creamy tomato orzo soup from Two Peas and Their Pod uses canned diced tomatoes, vegetable broth and greek yogurt, with spices and herbs that make it a real treat to slurp on a cold day.
