Caramelised Red Onion and Cherry Tomato Orzo Soup (Birds Tongue Soup)


Freshly made chicken broth is always very inviting and makes me want to make soup. I had been wanting to make the middle eastern birds tongue soup for a while, So it was the perfect time when I had some delicious, fresh chicken broth to use. I like to put a fresh modern twist on recipes from time to time and this is not the traditional recipe but something different and definitely my take on it.
The base of this soup is with red onions and cherry tomatoes caramelised in butter. It is so delicious and heart warming I really hope you try it.
