Directions

  1. In a large pan, saute the scallions and brussels sprouts in the olive oil on medium heat for about 8 minutes. The brussels sprouts should be mostly cooked before adding the orzo.
  2. Add the tomatoes and saute for another minute.
  3. Add the 2 3/4 cup of veggie broth and bring to a boil.
  4. Add the uncooked orzo, lemon juice and seasoning mix and give everything a good stir.
  5. Turn the heat down and let this simmer for about 20 minutes, until orzo is tender. Stir every now and then to make sure there is enough liquid to keep the orzo from sticking to the pan. If this happens, add veggie broth. Only add a little at a time because the excess liquid should be absorbed by the time the orzo is cooked.
