Lemon Garlic Orzo with Roasted Vegetables #pasta #vegetarian

Simmered veggies like asparagus sparkle in this orzo pasta formula. It's stacked with supplements that give stomach related help, is calming, advances heart wellbeing, and is stuffed with cell reinforcements. It very well may be eaten crude, sautéed, steamed, or broiled.

In the event that the stalks appear to be excessively woody, I utilize a vegetable peeler to evacuate the intense external skin of the stalk. I find, however, the freshest asparagus is truly delicate, so next to no of the stem should be cut. To keep asparagus crisp, I store it with the base of the stems enveloped by a moist paper towel and attempt to appreciate them inside 48 hours of acquiring.

This orzo pasta formula is a family most loved and meets up rapidly after the cleaving is finished. While the veggies are broiling and pine nuts are toasting (hehe), the orzo is cooked and dressing is prepared.

  • 1 C Mix of Red Yellow, or Orange Bell Peppers, deseeded and diced (I use baby bells), 126g
  • 1 lb Asparagus (sub zucchini or eggplant when in season!) cut into 1" pieces with woody ends discarded, 426g
  • 12 oz Cherry Tomatoes cut in 1/2, 340g
  • 2 tsp Garlic minced, 6g
  • 1/2 C Shallot chopped, 116g
  • 3 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil divided, 36g
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper Ground
  • 1 C Orzo 198g
  • 1 1/2 C Vegetable Broth 354g
  • 1/2 C Garlic and Herb Feta crumbled (Leave off for Vegan Option), 84g
For the Dressing:
  • 2 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil 24g
  • 1 Tbs Lemon juiced, about 2
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper ground

For the Garnish:

  • 2-3 Tbs Chopped Fresh Basil
  • 2-3 Tbs Chopped Fresh Parsley

Toast the Pine Nuts:

  1. Preheat Oven to 350F (177C) and toast pine nuts for 6-7 minutes, or until toasty and fragrant. Set aside to cool.

Roast the Veggies:

  1. Turn oven up to 425F (218C). Line two sheet pans with parchment paper. Place the mushrooms, bell peppers, asparagus, tomatoes, garlic and shallot on one pan. Sprinkle with 2 Tbs of olive oil. Using a spatula, mix all the veggies together with the olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper then stir again. Move 1/2 the veggie mixture to the other sheet pan. Spread the veggies in one layer, making sure there's no overlapping on both pans. Roast in 425F oven for 35-40 minutes (due to oven variations, keep an eye on your veggies and start checking your veggies at 25 minutes; a bit of charring is good!** SEE NOTES!!). Rotate pans 1/2 way through roasting. 

Cook the Orzo:

  1. In a large saute pan, heat 1 Tbs of Olive Oil on medium heat until shimmering. Add the orzo and stir, coating the orzo throughly. Stir occasionally for about 3 minutes or until the orzo is toasty and golden. Add the vegetable broth. Be careful here because the broth will spit and sputter. Bring to a simmer, turn down the heat to low, cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Stir. Remove from heat, cover and set aside.

Make the Dressing:

  1. In a small bowl add the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Whisk until all the ingredients are emulsified.

Putting it all Together:

  1. In the large saute pan, to the orzo, add the roasted veggies and all their juices, stir in the dressing, feta, and pine nuts. Garnish generously with basil and parsley. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes
*The price of Pine Nuts have skyrocketed! So, I've been using toasted chopped almonds or hazelnuts instead.
For cold service, place in a lidded container and chill for at least an hour. Let set at room temperature for 15 minutes, to soften the olive oil, stir and serve.
