Veggie Orzo

There's nothing like a delicious, warm orzo plate on a cool evening.

For those of to who don't know what orzo is, don't worry I got you 😃

Orzo is a type of pasta that looks like a long grain of rice. It can be made using white or wholegrain flour. It's ideal in soups or in its own with veggies. It has a soft, almost mushy texture. That's why I like adding crunchy veggies with it.

What's so great about orzo is that it's delicious and light. It's also a good source of thiamin and niacin, and it also contains some B6, folate, iron and zinc.

I hope you enjoy this recipe 😋
