Veggie Orzo

This recipe is soooo simple, and soooo good. I can’t stop eating it. It’s supposed to be making it into my freezer molds, and yet it keeps ending up in my mouth. So good for baby, but also a quick and easy side for mom and dad. (To be honest, I’d eat this for lunch or dinner on its own!)



1/4 lb orzo
32 oz low sodium veggie or chicken stock
1/2 cup carrots, peeled and diced
1/2 cup zucchini, diced
2/3 cup broccoli, diced
2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

Season your diced veg, toss in a large sauté pan along with your orzo. Cover veg and orzo with stock. Bring to a boil, cover and cook on medium/low for 15 minutes. Drain mixture. Add butter to the pan and melt. Remove from heat, and add veggie orzo back in the pan. Toss with Parmesan cheese till melted and serve!

I’d say this yields about 6 servings. I fed one to Scarlett, froze 4, and pretty much one whole serving myself while tossing lol. Enjoy!
