How to Cook Orzo

Orzo is a type of pasta that has a rice shaped appearance and a mild flavor. It is commonly used as an alternative to rice or other grains in dishes like soups, salads, and casseroles, or served as a side dish. Orzo is easy to cook and is ready in just minutes. Here is a simple guide on how to cook orzo:


-1 cup of orzo
-2 cups of water
-Salt to taste


1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add a pinch of salt to the boiling water.

2. When the water is boiling, add the orzo to the pot. Stir the orzo to ensure the pasta does not stick to the bottom of the pot.

3. Boil the orzo for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally.

4. Once the orzo is cooked, strain the orzo and rinse it with cold water.

5. Add the cooked orzo to your desired dish or serve as a side dish.


-If you want a nuttier taste, try toasting the orzo before boiling.
-You can add a tablespoon of olive oil to the boiling water to keep the orzo from sticking together.
-For a more flavorful orzo, add some herbs and spices to the boiling water.
-For a healthier option, try cooking the orzo in vegetable or chicken broth instead of water.
