Mushroom, Orzo, and Pea Salad

I hope everyone had a good week, mine has been a bit hectic but it looks like everything is slowly getting back to normal.  I needed to put together something very quickly to eat because these past few days, I have not been sleeping or eating well.  I truly was not in any mood for any sort of meat, so this recipe was simple with a few ingredients and a whole bunch of mushroom taste. 

It definitely is not one of those one pot dinners, but what I do love about this dish is that I can enjoy it either hot or cold. 🙂

Ingredients:

350 grams of Orzo

6 cups Chicken Broth

250 grams Mushrooms sliced

2 cups frozen Peas

1 Onion diced (Optional)

Salt

Pepper

Parmesan Cheese for topping

2 tablespoon Olive Oil

Preparation:

Orzo

P1000933

Boil chicken broth with orzo, and peas for 1/2 hr and until orzo is cooked.  Once cooked drain and set aside.

P1000934

Sliced mushrooms.

P1000935

In a frying pan add the olive oil, and mushrooms.  Stir mushrooms until golden brown.

P1000944

Add the orzo and pea mix into the mushrooms and mix for 10 minutes.  Top with parmesan cheese and enjoy a lovely, light, delicious, hot or cold dish.  🙂

  6. Just a curiosity… did you know that in Italian “orzo” means Barley? Keep it in mind if you’ll ever order Orzo in an Italian restaurant 😉!

  12. So glad things slowed down for you. This meal looks and sounds amazing! I am guessing I could add some kind of meat to it too, maybe chicken? I must pester you to death with all these, “can I do this or that” to your already perfect recipes :):)
