Mushroom Orzo Pilaf – Quick, creamy and delicious one-pot pilaf with orzo and mushrooms.

Mushroom Orzo Pilaf - Quick, creamy and delicious one-pot pilaf with orzo and mushrooms.



Now. THIS is my kind of eating delicious vegetarian. It’s also the kind of delicious that you eat straight from the pan, burning your tongue and all, because it’s so darn good!!

Heya! What’s going awn’? How’s your week so far? Fingers crossed, you all have great news to share!

For me, because it’s been gloomy and rainy, the good news to share is that I’ve caught up on all the things that have been chillin’ on my DVR. “Secrets and Wives” might be my new addiction.
Also? Ryan and Jaclyn better get it right!! I was devastated! All my reality tv junkies should know what I’m talkin’ bout. #marriedatfirstsight

Also ALSO?? $100 GIVEAWAY! It’s been a while! I hope YOU win!

Mushroom Orzo Pilaf - Quick, creamy and delicious one-pot pilaf with orzo and mushrooms.

One more good piece of news? I have also learned how to use artificial lights to take food pictures for ya even when it’s dark and moody outside! What do you think? Do they look good? I HOPE! Let me know!

By the way, because of the gloomy mood… and expiring mushrooms…. and comfort food, I made us pilaf: warm, creamy, damn delicious pilaf with orzo! Whole Wheat Orzo, at that!

Mushroom Orzo Pilaf - Quick, creamy and delicious one-pot pilaf with orzo and mushrooms.

This pilaf is based on some of my favorite pilaf and risotto meals that my mom makes. IF there’s a person that knows how to make a mean pilaf AND risotto the right way, that’s my Mama. It’s like WHOA! I’ll have her “make” it for you and I one of these days and share her secrets, and exhausting mixing and stirring that comes with all that good food.

BUT, because you and I like (and need!) shortcuts, there’s very minimal mixing involved here and it all takes place in one pan, in under 30 minutes. HIGH FIVE!

Mushroom Orzo Pilaf - Quick, creamy and delicious one-pot pilaf with orzo and mushrooms.

The dreamy creaminess here is what really counts. And it’s earthy. And filling.

Looking for something warm and meaty to go with it? Hmmm… chicken! Fish. Tofu! More veggies? Play with it, you can’t go wrong!

ENJOY!
