Creamy Garlic Orzo
Super simple and delicious recipe. This creamy garlic orzo is the perfect addition to summer BBQ's and only requires one pot!
- 4 tbsp vegan butter separated
- 2 cups orzo
- 3 cups vegetable stock or bouillon & water
- 1/2 cup onion diced
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
- 3/4 cup rice milk plain, unsweetened
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp dried parsley
- 2 tsp lime juice
Melt 2 tbsp vegan butter in a large skillet over low-medium heat. Stir in onions, garlic & orzo and sauté until orzo is lightly browned, about 5 minutes (stirring continuously & be careful not to burn the orzo).
Slowly add the vegetable stock (or bouillon & water) and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer and cook for about 13 minutes, stirring occasionally (until the orzo is fully cooked).
Once cooked, stir in the last 2 tbsp butter, rice milk and nutritional yeast. While continuing to stir, bring back to a boil.
Lower to a simmer and stir in salt, pepper, parsley & lime juice. Cook on low for another minute or so.
Serve warm. Enjoy!
