Mixed Veggies,Orzo & Peanut Soup

Needless to say how it will be lazy to cook when its super hot outside. I felt like having something quick as soup for my today's lunch, this easy soup goes for variety of veggies. Just picked all the veggies left in my fridge and cooked everything together in low fat cream and vegetable broth in which i could not stop myself adding some orzo pasta and boiled peanuts.This soup was really filling, comforting and hearty with  plenty of veggies, its quite an excellent,super filling soup can be prepared within few minutes with simple ingredients that we have anytime at home.

This soup with peanuts and orzo can be served even for dinner with some toasted bread slices or grilled meats.I prepared my soup bit thick as i had it for my lunch, you can add more water in case if you need to have them bit light. You can skip very well the cream in this soup,by replacing it with a sauce prepared simply with water and cornflour.
