Easy Rice Pilaf with Orzo is deliciously easy to make and beats anything out of a box! This “go-with-almost-everything” side dish of tender white rice and golden orzo pasta is infinitely versatile and an always popular choice! Just try it!

Ingredients
servings

  • Unsalted butter
    2 tbsp.
  • Orzo pasta
    0,5 cups
  • Extra long grain white rice
    1 cups
  • Chicken stock
    3 cups
  • Salt and pepper
    to taste

Method

  • Rinse the rice in a bowl under running water. Drain and set aside. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.

  • Add the orzo and cook, stirring frequently, until the orzo is golden brown. Add the rinsed rice and stir for about 2 minutes, until the grains are coated with the butter.

  • Add the stock and stir. Bring to a boil. Cover the saucepan and reduce the heat to a low simmer. Simmer the rice pilaf for 15 minutes. Remove the lid and check for doneness. Season with salt and pepper.

Tips

  • Freeze: Yes, you can freeze pilaf! Place in freezer safe dish. Defrost in the refrigerator and then re heat as outlined above.

  • Reheat the pilaf in a microwave or at 350 degrees in a covered dish in the oven. 

  • The pilaf can be made several hours ahead of time. Cool, lightly cover and refrigerate.

  • For a vegetarian version, substitute olive oil for the butter and use vegetable stock.

Bon Appetit!
