Lemon Garlic Orzo with Roasted Vegetables #vegan #vegetarian #soup #breakfast #lunch

Lemon Garlic Orzo with Roasted Vegetables is stuffed with surface and flavor. A delightful and simple orzo pasta formula served warm or chilled and makes fantastic scraps as well! veggie lover + vegetarian choice

With spring in blossom, so are our preferred products of the soil. I took a drive out to one of the ranches yesterday, not just on the grounds that I'm restless to get my hands on crisp strawberries yet the freshest asparagus I can discover for this formula.

Simmered veggies like asparagus sparkle in this orzo pasta formula. It's stacked with supplements that give stomach related help, is calming, advances heart wellbeing, and is pressed with cancer prevention agents. It very well may be eaten crude, sautéed, steamed, or simmered.

In the event that the stalks appear to be excessively woody, I utilize a vegetable peeler to expel the extreme external skin of the stalk. I find, however, the freshest asparagus is entirely delicate, so almost no of the stem should be cut. To keep asparagus new, I store it with the base of the stems enveloped by a clammy paper towel and attempt to appreciate them inside 48 hours of buying.

  • For the Orzo and Veggies:

  • 1 C Mix of Red Yellow, or Orange Bell Peppers, deseeded and diced (I use baby bells), 126g
  • 1 lb Asparagus (sub zucchini or eggplant when in season!) cut into 1" pieces with woody ends discarded, 426g
  • 12 oz Cherry Tomatoes cut in 1/2, 340g
  • 2 tsp Garlic minced, 6g
  • 1/2 C Shallot chopped, 116g
  • 3 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil divided, 36g
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper Ground
  • 1 C Orzo 198g
  • 1 1/2 C Vegetable Broth 354g
  • 1/2 C Garlic and Herb Feta crumbled (Leave off for Vegan Option), 84g
  • For the Dressing:
  • 2 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil 24g
  • 1 Tbs Lemon juiced, about 2
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper ground
  • For the Garnish:
  • 2-3 Tbs Chopped Fresh Basil
  • 2-3 Tbs Chopped Fresh Parsley


  1. Toast the Pine Nuts:
  2. Preheat oven to 350F (177C) and toast pine nuts for 6-7 minutes, or until toasty and fragrant. Set aside to cool.
  3. Roast the Veggies:
  4. Turn oven up to 425F (218C). Line two sheet pans with parchment paper. Place the mushrooms, bell peppers, asparagus, tomatoes, garlic and shallot on one pan. Sprinkle with 2 Tbs of olive oil. Using a spatula, mix all the veggies together with the olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper then stir again. Move 1/2 the veggie mixture to the other sheet pan. Spread the veggies in one layer, making sure there's no overlapping on both pans. Roast in a 425F oven for 35-40 minutes (due to oven variations, keep an eye on your veggies and start checking your veggies at 25 minutes; a bit of charring is good!** SEE NOTES!!). Rotate pans 1/2 way through roasting. 
  5. Cook the Orzo:
  6. In a large saute pan, heat 1 Tbs of Olive Oil on medium heat until shimmering. Add the orzo and stir, coating the orzo thoroughly. Stir occasionally for about 3 minutes or until the orzo is toasty and golden. Add the vegetable broth. Be careful here because the broth will spit and sputter. Bring to a simmer, turn down the heat to low, cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Stir. Remove from heat, cover and set aside.
  7. Make the Dressing:
  8. In a small bowl add the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Whisk until all the ingredients are emulsified.
  9. Putting it all Together:
  10. In the large saute pan, to the orzo, add the roasted veggies and all their juices, stir in the dressing, feta, and pine nuts. Garnish generously with basil and parsley. Serve immediately.
