Very tasty dish. I sauted chopped onions and 3 cloves of garlic then added the rice and orzo to toast. I also used chicken broth. Amazing flavor and easy to follow directions!

I loved it. I've had orzo prepared with more or less the same ingredients but never orzo and rice. Only change I made was to saute fresh garlic and onion and add it with the turmeric.If this isn't listed under comfort food, it needs to be.
