Vegetable Orzo

Recipe by Cindy

This is a flavorful side dish. I usually serve it with roasted chicken or Italian sausages. Makes plenty so there is some leftover for lunch.

Tasty! We added another pepper and used fresh mushrooms.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook orzo in chicken broth until tender (add water if necessary).
  2. Sauté the the vegetables in butter until tender adding the garlic near the end to prevent burning.
  3. This is where I usually add a little salt and fresh cracked pepper.
  4. Drain the orzo and combine with the cooked vegetables and add the chopped parsley.
  5. The heat of the other ingredients will wilt the parsley.
  6. Stir in the juice of the 1/2 lemon and olive oil if desired.
  7. Serve with grated Parmesan.
  8. Enjoy.
