Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

Orzo Pilaf


1/4 cup of vegan margarine or olive oil

2-3 cloves of minced garlic

2 cups uncooked orzo (16 oz bag)

4-5 cups of vegetable stock (or 4-5 cups water plus some bouillon cubes/powder)

3 tbsp of tomato paste

1 bag of frozen vegetables or whatever you have on hand

salt, pepper, parsley to taste


- Heat the margarine or olive oil in a large saucepan on medium-high and add the garlic and saute for a minute or two (make sure it doesn't brown or burn).

- Add in the uncooked orzo and let it soak up the margarine/oil as you stir it around.

- Add in the vegetable stock, tomato paste, seasonings and vegetables. Stir a few times until the mixture comes to a boil.

- Cover and let simmer for about 15 mins or so until the orzo is cooked. Check every 5 mins and stir to make sure things aren't sticking to the bottom. If the liquid is completely absorbed but the orzo isn't done yet, add a little more liquid. Taste, re-season and serve.
