Herbed Lemon Orzo

Recipe

Orzo is a petite pasta that looks like rice. In Italian it means “barley,” no doubt because its shape reminds Italians of a grain of cooked barley. In much the same way that you would add herbs to rice for a light savory accompaniment to more powerful entrees, this orzo provides the sensual pleasure of pasta with light floral notes.

Ingredients

  • 10 cups Basic Chicken Broth
  • 4 cups orzo
  • ½ cup chopped fresh lemon thyme leaves (see Note)
  • 4 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 4 teaspoons peanut oil
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Directions

1. Bring the broth to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Add the orzo, reduce the heat to medium, and cook until just tender, 9 minutes. Drain, and return the pasta to the pan.

2. Add the remaining ingredients and toss well to combine. Serve hot.

Notes

If lemon thyme is unavailable, substitute ¼ cup chopped fresh regular thyme or ½ cup chopped fresh parsley or oregano.
