Mediterranean inspired very light and healthy orzo soup with kale and pumpkin. We love these ingredients and have made  a delectable and heavy soup, a great winter recipe to enjoy at anytime meal of the day. You can use any vegetables for the soup; since pumpkin is available in plenty during the winter season we have used it. You can even use Spinach in place of Kale if it not available in your area. Use a vegetable broth to make it a vegetarian soup or just follow the recipe details to make non- vegetarian one. 

Serve Kale Pumpkin Orzo Soup Recipe along with Whole Wheat Rosemary Focaccia Bread Recipe for a weeknight dinner.
