Orzo is a variety of light pasta and perhaps not a common grain used in your kitchen… yet. Look for the whole grain variety for an extra fiber boost, and you’ll soon see how delicious orzo can be.

Extra virgin olive oil 2 T
Onion, peeled and chopped 1/2 c
Garlic, peeled and minced 4 cloves
Orzo 1.5 c
Low-sodium vegetable stock 4 c
Baby spinach, packed 2 c
Low-fat parmigiana reggiano cheese, finely grated 1/2 c
Freshly ground black pepper 1/8 t
Shiitake mushrooms, chopped 2 c
  1. Add oil to a medium-sized skillet or saucepan, and place over medium heat.
  2. When the pan is hot, add the onions, garlic, and mushrooms. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add the orzo, and stir to coat.
  4. Pour in the stock and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed.
  5. Add the spinach and cheese. Stir to combine. Give the spinach 1 to 2 minutes to wilt.
  6. Taste and season with freshly ground black pepper, if needed, before serving.
