Ingredients

2 tsp
3/4 cup
1/2 cup
frozen peas
2 tbsp
fresh mint

Instructions

  • Heat a medium saucepan over high. Add oil, then orzo. Stir until orzo is coated. Stir in broth and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, until orzo is tender, 7 to 8 min. Orzo will absorb liquid as it sits. Stir in peas until warmed through, 2 to 3 min. Cover to keep warm. Chop mint and stir in just before serving.

This spring dish only takes 15 minutes to make. Chop mint and stir in just before serving.

  1. This is a very simple recipe that tastes great with a summer BBQ. It can easily be doubled.
