Imitation Crab, Orzo and Veggie Skillet

This is a work in progress. I need to mess around with the spices, but I had all this in the fridge, and I didn't want to go to the store. I'm thinking next time I might use white wine as a stock. Let me know if anyone has any other ideas! The veggies were good together and the orzo added a nice buttery flavor. **The amounts of spices are guessed.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook Orzo.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat, add red pepper flakes and garlic. Cook until garlic is browned. Be careful not to burn garlic. If you do, start over.
  3. Add broccoli. Add more olive oil if needed. Cook until broccoli starts to turn crip-tender.
  4. Add bell pepper, and continue to cook.
  5. Once bell pepper and broccoli are crip-tender, add spices and remaining veggies, and Imitation Crab. (this would be where i would add white wine or chicken stock -- ).
  6. Once it's heated through and the flavors have blended, add cooked orzo and stir till heated through.

This came out to be quite tasty. I made a single serving for tonights dinner and used 1 tsp of a Greek seasoning. It was almost a breath of spring freshness with all the veggies. Made for PAC, spring 2011
