Orzo fans, is there anything better in winter or summer than a bowl of fragrant, lemon-scented pasta goodness? We think not! For a heartier, cheesier orzo, make sure to check out another orzo recipe fave of ours.


  • 1 cup orzo
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 450ml veg stock (from granules)
  • pinch of salt
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 5g flat leaf parsley
  • tenderstem tips
  • 150g peas
  • feta or non-dairy feta (optional)


  1. Place your pan on medium heat. Once the pan has heated up, pour the oil in.
  2. Add the orzo and stir so until coated in oil and it begins to toast.
  3. Grate the garlic into the pan and stir again.
  4. When the orzo begins to take on some colour add in the stock and place the lid on the pan.
  5. Leave for 5 minutes. Stir occasionally to ensure the orzo doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  6. After 5 minutes, and once the orzo has absorbed most of the liquid, add in the peas and the tender stem broccoli and steam by placing the lid back on the pan for 3 minutes, until the pasta and veggies are al dente.
  7. Allow to cool slightly, then add in the wild rocket, sprinkle over the (optional) feta and serve. Enjoy!
