🍁 Ingredients (2 servings) 🍁

  • 1 cup orzo pasta 
  • 2 cups of water
  • around 40 g/1.41 oz of a rocket mix 
  • medium lemons 
  • 1 cup/110g cherry tomatoes 
  • medium Avocado
  • 1 tbsp  Vegetable Butter

*** Add half a cup of unseeded black olives for a sweet/tangy combination! ****

Dressing: I use my own Lemon Garlic ! Just add 1 to 2 tsps of dried mint to it!

🌱 Preparation and Cooking step 👩‍🍳

Read instructions on the packet of Orzo Pasta you get. Recipes differ. But this should be a safe way to go in case there aren’t any instructions:

  1. Place large pan on low heat and add vegetable butter.
  2. Allow the butter to soften, and add the pasta.
  3. Turn fire to medium heat stir pasta in melted butter until they start darkening in color.
  4. Add the water
  5. Once the water boils, reduce to low heat, cover and let simmer until all the water is absorbed.

👩‍🍳How to Serve 👩‍🍳

Make sure your veggies are washed. Once the orzo cools, add green mixture and mix, top with avocados and cherry tomatoes. Add dressing, mix and serve!
