Yummy Creamy Tomato and Orzo Soup
It's probably no surprise that I love making soups.
There are quite a few different soup recipes to be found on here.
I love this one, the rich sweetness of the tomatoes, with the creaminess of coconut milk. I add some orzo to this one to make it more like a meal like and it really was lovely.
A great family meal - kids especially will love this one.
