Recipe For Browned Butter Orzo


Have you ever looked in a cupboard and had an ingredient just speak to you? Perhaps it was a bag of chocolate chips or a bottle of curry powder. Whatever it was, you just knew you had to make something with it immediately. That’s what my jar of orzo did last week.

I wanted it to star in a dish. Usually orzo co-stars in pilaf or soup or salads, but this time it took center stage. A browned butter stage. It really was a great combination with the nutty browned butter and the normally shy orzo. I served it with pork roast and maple carrots. It was a lovely meal.
