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. 🙂



  • 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


  • Boil chicken broth with orzo, and peas for 1/2 hr and until orzo is cooked. Once cooked drain and set aside.
  • Sliced mushrooms.
  • In a frying pan add the olive oil, and mushrooms. Stir mushrooms until golden brown.
  • 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. 🙂
