Healthy and Quick Vege Orzo Pasta Salad

Healthy and Quick Vege Orzo Pasta Salad

Ingredients for Orzo Salad

This recipe has been modified from the original version 'Asparagus & Edamame Orzo Salad' by Quick and Easy Recipes. 

Ingredients for 4 servings:
  • 1 Cup of Orzo Pasta
  • Asparagus
  • Green Peas
  • Grilled Peppers
  • Grape Tomatoes
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

 

Boiling orzo

Boil a cup of orzo for 10-15 minutes or till they get tender the way you like. 

 

Chopping Asparagus

 

Boiling peas and asparagus

Boil chopped asparagus and green peas for 5 minutes. Don't boil them too long unless you like mushy vegetables. :)

Putting Boiled Orzo Pasta in a Dish

Mixing with Vegetables

Add cooked asparagus and peas along with fresh tomatoes. 

 

Drizzle 2-3 TBSPS Olive Oil

Drizzle and drizzle. Any fine quality of EVOO would be fine, but this case I would recommend O Olive Oil Organic Meyer Lemon for its wonderful citrus flavor adding an extra kick to the dish.

Light and Healthy Orzo Vegetables Salad

We love orzo pasta for its chewy texture and how it blends well with other ingredients. Enjoy this light and tasty dish.
