Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 3/4 cup orzo
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 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.
