Organic Orzo  – pasta that looks like rice!

Organic Orzo is made from semolina flour which is ground from durum wheat.

These tiny pasta pieces can be used in a range of ways, from a creamy risotto type dish to a light pasta salad. If you like hearty soups then orzo can be added at the end for extra texture and substance.

Orzo is an Italian creation but it is popular across Europe including Greece where it is known as krithiraki.

If you enjoy summery salads and side dishes then orzo is a great addition, giving extra texture and flavour.  You can use orzo in the same way you use rice (or combine it with rice) in any recipe so don’t be afraid to get creative with this speciality pasta.

Family Tip:

  1. If you like risotto then try orzo instead of rice as a new twist, it cooks quickly and has a lovely rich texture.
  2. Lightly fry a small handful of orzo in a pan and let it gently brown, then add rice and water and cook normally.  The added texture is a great addition!
