A Creamy Vegan Lemon “Parmesan” Orzo with Asparagus that’s so cheesy, you’re going to forget its Vegan! Delicate orzo pasta, tender asparagus and hint of lemon in this perfect dinner.
Most on-the-spur-of-the-moment recipe I have ever made. No jokes.
I had a bunch of asparagus from forever ago when I was obsessed with it, and I could see the tips starting to soften and get mushy. So I just really wanted to use that up somehow.
And since I'm having a pasta phase I wanted to do some sort of a pasta, and then remembered an Orzo recipe from Half Baked Harvest’s Instagram I'd come across at one point which used some veggies. Turned out it was a cheesy lemon zucchini orzo.
I went off of that and created this Vegan lemon orzo with asparagus instead.
It was so good that I regretted using all of that asparagus in the one recipe, coz I couldn't make any more the next day.
