Greek Orzo with Feta and Tomato (Recipe)


✅ 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasadrinos **FREE Bottle**)

✅ 1 medium onion finely chopped

✅ 1 garlic clove minced

✅ 1 ¼ cup dry whole wheat orzo

✅ 1 tsp oregano

✅ 2 tsp chopped parsley
✅ 2-3 cups water

✅ 12 oz (340 g) crushed tomatoes

✅ 1 oz (30 g) feta crumbled or grated for serving

✅ Salt and Pepper

✅ 2 tsp chopped parsley


1️⃣ Heat the olive oil in deep pan and sauté the onion until translucent about 5 minutes. Then add the garlic and continue sauteing for 1 minute.

2️⃣ Add the orzo and mix, making sure all the orzo is coated with olive oil. Add the tomato, 1 ½ cup hot water, ½ tsp oregano, ¼ tsp salt, ⅛ tsp black pepper, stir and simmer covered for about 12-15 minutes until cooked, adding hot water as needed (¼ cup at a time). Stir occasionally to avoid sticking.

3️⃣ When done it will still be slightly liquid and have a risotto like texture. Cover and let it sit for 5 minutes.

4️⃣ To serve, place in a shallow bowl, add feta, sprinkle with parsley, oregano, and finish with ground black pepper.
