Creamy Tomato Orzo Soup made with Greek Yogurt is rich and hearty, yet light thanks to the yogurt. It is so delicious and comforting – a perfect winter soup!
Soup season is officially here again! I love to eat soup all year round, but I definitely take a break from making it in the warmer months. Who wants to stand over a hot stove for an hour when it is 80 degrees outside? But now that fall is here and the temperatures are dropping, it is time to get back on the soup making bandwagon! First up this season for me is Creamy Tomato Orzo soup made with Greek Yogurt! It is so rich and creamy, but you don’t have to feel guilty eating it because the creaminess comes from yogurt, not cream!
I am kind of obsessed with soup – it is my favorite thing to cook. TheBetterHalf jokes that all I make is soup and baked goods. And he’s kind of right. I need to broaden my cooking horizons – but there’s just something about a comforting bowl of soup that I can’t resist. Plus it is a great way to eat more veggies!
I am not usually a fan of making creamy soups. I try to keep things a little healthier when we cook at home, and save the heavy cream for when we are out to eat. That’s why this tomato orzo soup jumped out at me – it is thick and creamy, but not from fattening heavy cream – it uses Greek yogurt! I knew I had to try it. It just might be my new favorite tomato soup. It is so thick and creamy, with an amazing tomato flavor.
The orzo makes it hearty enough to be a meal. The fresh basil complements the tomato so well. The whole thing comes together in about 30 minutes, making this a perfect option for a weeknight dinner. Oh, and it goes pretty well with some no-knead bread too!
