Easy Orzo With Three Variations
source: Greg Turner
I made some orzo as an almost midnight snack the other day. It had a very delicate, toasted flavor which I loved. It was so cheap and good I decided to pass on the recipe.
2 cups orzo
2 – 3 tbsp. butter or margarine
1 tsp. chicken bouillon (parve or vegan)
salt, to taste
small pinch pepper
Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Add the orzo and cook till light brown. Add three cups of water, bouillon, salt and pepper. Stir well. When the water begins to cook out, add another 1/4 cup of water. Continue adding water until the orzo is done to your liking.
Easy Orzo with Cheese: Stir 1/4 cup parmesan into the orzo when done cooking.
Easy Orzo with Peas: Add 1/4 cup frozen peas to the orzo after toasting.
Easy Orzo with Garlic or Onion: I usually add a pinch or two of garlic or onion powder to my orzo right after adding the water.
