Mushroom and Kale Orzo

I’m really loving orzo at the moment and this dish is super quick to whip up for a midweek meal. I also love it for left overs the next day.

Mushroom and Kale Orzo


Serves 4

1 tbsp olive oil

1 onion, diced

4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

400g mushrooms, roughly chopped

2 cups orzo

4 cups vegetable stock

Handful parsley, finely chopped

Handful chives, finely chopped

1 cup kale, roughly chopped

1 tsp salt

½ tsp pepper


Add the olive oil, onion, garlic and mushrooms to a saucepan over medium heat and cook for 3-5 minutes. 

Add in the orzo and vegetable stock. Cover and leave to cook for 15 minutes, siring every 5 minutes so the pasta doesn’t stick to the bottom. 

Add in the parsley, chives, kale, salt and pepper and stir to combine for 5 minutes until the kale is soft.
