I quite liked this dish! It was easy to prepare and a nice change from plain ole rice. DS thought that it was a little too lemony (I made this with fresh lemon juice), but he's the picky eater in the family. DD had a friend over for supper and this child went back for a big helping of seconds. I left out the zucchini because I didn't have any but made the recipe exactly as directed, otherwise. I doubled the amounts and found that the leftovers made a really great fried rice a couple of days later. Thank you for sharing!
This recipe is now a staple that I serve with fish, especially rosemary grilled salmon fillets. I wanted a more lemony taste so I usually add some dried lemon zest. I also use 1/2 Tbsp of dried parsley when I don't have fresh. Fresh is better.
Such a perfect side. Loved the combination of rice and orzo. Left out the carrots and zuchinni, just because . . . and it's just the best rice side, a new addition, a keeper. Thanks for sharing. Lolly
I made this for our first ever at-home greek meal. I sauteed the zucchini and carrots in the butter until soft during step one, and then added the chopped parsley after I removed the rice from the stove. It all came out perfect and tasty and complemented our gyros very well. I will be making this often. It is a new favorite! Thanks Mommy-chef for sharing this recipe!
