Gluten-Free Orzo With Pesto
Freshly made Gluten-Free Orzo with Pesto under 30 minutes. This orzo recipe is one of the simplest and easiest you will make. Honestly, all you do is mix the flours, eggs a little water and grate on a box grater. For the most delicious pesto sauce, I used a little butter, a hint of garlic, gluten-free chicken broth, pesto and parmesan cheese. All of this goodness is made in one skillet and less than 30 minutes. It’s creamy, savoury, garlicky and the gluten-free orzo pasta is made from scratch In this recipe, I used ready-made pesto sauce, but I often use my freshly made walnut pesto sauce in this gluten-free orzo Italian dish.
Orzo, which means “barley” in Italian, is about the size of cooked rice or barley and can be served as a side dish or as a main. Orzo originated from Italy and is widely used in Mediterranean cuisine, especially in Greece. Orzo is also used in soups and sauces or even in pasta salads. If you are using orzo in salads, toss cooked orzo in olive oil first to avoid the orzo from sticking.
Next week I will be sharing with you my famous gluten-free beef and barley soup made with a herby orzo. You will love it because it is beyond delicious, super simple and made in an Instant Pot. A perfect hearty soup for rainy days! So, stay tuned. You don’t want to miss this recipe!
