I’ve been on an orzo kick lately.
You can find it in the grocery store next to most rice and /or pastas.
It’s easy to cook and supposedy good in protein and fiber.
Here’s a YUMMY recipe to try if you’re a fan.
I made it up a few weeks ago and am going to make it up again this weekend, I loved it so much!
Lemon Orzo Salad
12 ounces orzo, cooked according to package, drained and rinsed with COLD water
3/4 package of bagged spinach, chopped
1 can chickpeas or garbanzo beans, drained
1 cucumber, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
Fresh basil leaves, chopped – – add however much you like.
This MAKES the salad!
3 lemons, juiced
1/4 cup olive oil
3/4 cup feta cheese
Salt and Pepper generously, to taste
Mix everything together, chill and serve!
