Wandering Msheireb – it was good to explore and see what’s opened up since last winter.

Creamy Hidden Zucchini Orzo

Y’all know I love to hide some veggies, and this is a great dish to do so. It also, strangely, ends up tasting cheesy and kinda like mac & cheese. Win-win.

Note to future me: DH has requested a repeat showing of this recipe.

vegetarian, vegan

Creamy Hidden Zucchini Orzo

2/3 cup orzo (56g pp)

2 cups veggie or chicken stock

1/2 cup coconut milk

1 Tablespoon butter (Earth Balance is fine)

Zest of half a lemon

1/4 cup parsley, chopped

1/2 cup zucchini, grated finely

Cook the orzo in the stock, stirring continuously so it doesn’t stick for 5-6 minutes or until al dente, adding the zucchini in at the last minute. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir.

Serves 2 for dinner

This is one happy boy. Our inaugural trip to Al Bidda park this season was a success! The pups got to smell all the greenery, Odin didn’t yell at the gardeners, our new harnesses were a hit, and we even had brief moments of no pulling. Plus: run time with Daddy. A win/win kind of day, despite some car hysterics.
