When I set out to make this recipe, it was really meant to be a kid friendly meal for Shaan but as I got further and further in the process, I realized that this was WAY too good to be JUST for the baby, lol! First of all, I’ve been a huge fan of one pot recipes lately because it makes clean up SO MUCH EASIER and so this orzo wins not only for flavor but also for its ease! It’s definitely more on the simple side and doesn’t have my usual fusion twist- but some things are delicious simply the way they are! If you need more spice or kick, you can add a pinch of garam masala to this a long with a generous dash of crushed red chili flakes.
This dish resembles risotto and if I might say so myself, I feel like it might be even BETTER than risotto. It’s creamy, cheese, and so satisfying! I had some zucchini laying around so used it in this recipe but feel free to add in any kinds of veggies you like! I made a batch of this recipe on Sunday and loved enjoying it throughout the week- I even threw spoonfuls of it in Shaan’s soups and it added the perfect heartiness. I hope you enjoy trying this new recipe out !
