PERFECT FOR A QUICK AND EASY RISOTTO
I used this to try the Nigella Pasta Risotto recipe. Perfect! I rarely make a rice risotto now, this is so quick and easy.
Keeps its shape and does not go mushy, the grains are nice and chunky,well worth the extra money and you can tell the difference between this and a standard type.
Lovely to cook and eat.
I cook it as if making savoury rice, with chopped onion and garlic, fried with turmeric and a little dried chilli, chicken stock and any other bits and pieces of veg to taste. Great with salmon, chicken, chopped leftover gammon or any other meats. Nice! Quite expensive though, Tesco. I'm sure it used to be cheaper? Very adaptable to whatever you fancy. Try it. Tends to stick to bottom of pot, so I leave a short time to unstick. Kids would love it, so easy to eat and digest. Any leftovers freeze well.
Perfect for a chicken, tomato and orzo stew. I find this much better than other supermarket orzo varieties that are available.
Fantastic to add to soups and casseroles when you want something a little thicker than normal. Also great just with pasta sauce. Really versatile product.
I started buying this product about 2 years ago after seeing a programme where Nigella made a risotto with it. I tried the recipe and it certainly does save time, instead of taking hours to put liquid into rice and let it evaporate, you put all the ingredients in a pan, add the orzo and liquid stir and leave for 10 minutes and the risotto is done, a great product if you want to make a nice meal and don't have much time.
Nice pasta to add to rice or soups.
Dinner in a flash!
Always in the store cupboard along with sundried tomatoes with chilli. Wiz up the tomatoes add some fresh basil and Parmesan. Delicious.
