Veggie Orzo Soup

When you wake up with frost on the inside of your car’s windshield, it is definitely a “soup day.”

We love soup in case you couldn’t already tell. I mean, who can say no to a piping hot, steaming bowl of warm soup after being outside in arctic-like temps? No one can, unless you hate delicious food…

That’s why I needed to share the recipe for this yummy Veggie Orzo Soup we enjoyed while huddling ourselves up to the fire oven. It’s a mix between a tasty Minestrone Soup and One Pot Pasta, and it won’t disappoint.

We (mostly I) enjoy doing meatless meals at least once a week! I can’t get enough.
