By: | October 9, 2017 | | 9 comments

Mushroom and Parsley Orzo
I wanted to serve my boys rice, since they had not had it in many weeks, and then the one asked for pasta so this was perfect. The best of both starches – Orzo 👌
2 Tablespoons ghee
1 small onion chopped finely
3-5 garlic cloves crushed
200g mushrooms sliced
Crack of Himalayan pink salt
Crack of black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp paprika
1 cup Orzo
3 cups broth / stock / water
1/4 cup dried parsley
Het the ghee and fry the onions and garlic till light brown.
Add the mushrooms and cook till brown.
Add all the seasoning and spices with 2 Tablespoons water.
Add Orzo, stir well and cook for a minute.
Add stock (liquid) and turn the heat down.
Stir in the dried parsley and cook uncovered till the water has evaporated and the Orzo is tender.
Add a small amount of water if needed to soften the pasta.
Stir well and serve immediately.

  2. I’ve not heard of orzo before but I’ve just spotted a packet in my local supermarket, so thank you for the introduction to a new foodstuff & I’m looking forward to experimenting! 😊
