Creamy Mushroom & Orzo Soup

Orzo is a kind of pasta which looks exactly like rice and they are quite used in soups or for making risottos..I love mushrooms as anything, thats why i combined both mushroom and orzo together in a soup, this soup tastes marvellous, filling and quite a wonderful soup to enjoy for a simple dinner..I used  two tablespoons of low fat cream to this soup to give simple soup,you can completely skip the addition of cream in this soup..You can also serve this soup even for lunch coz of the addition of orzo pastas...Warm comforting soup to enjoy without any hesitation..

Creamy Mushroom & Orzo Soup

1/2cup Orzo pasta
1cup Mushrooms (chopped)
1no Onion (large& chopped)
2cups Vegetable stock
Few spring onions
Water
2tbsp Low fat cream
Pepper powder
Salt
Olive oil

Heat enough olive oil, saute the chopped onions until they turns transculent, add immediately the chopped mushrooms,salt and cook for few minutes, add now the vegetable stock,water with pepper powder and bring to boil..

Add the orzo pasta to the cooking broth,cook in simmer until the pasta gets cooked, finally add the cream and spring onions..serve warm with toasted breads..

The soup looks delicious and love anything with mushrooms. Noted for colder days as now we are having very high temperatures. Hope to see you again at my new event: cakes with olive oil.
