Orzo Pilaf ~ orzo pasta with peas cooked in chicken broth

Just a quick post today.  Wanted to share the orzo pasta I cooked for Charles’ lunch.  Simple yet tasty; a nice alternative to rice.  I simply used homemade chicken stock, garlic powder, salt and pepper but you could jazz this up with some spice or herb combination as desired.

Orzo Pilaf

  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup uncooked orzo
  • 1/2 tsp each ~ salt, pepper, and garlic powder
  • 1 cup frozen peas.

Bring chicken stock to simmer over medium high heat.  Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, and orzo and cook for about 9 minutes uncovered. Stir in frozen peas and bring back to light boil.  Cover, remove from heat and let rest about 10 minutes.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
