I had never used orzo before this recipe but I like it — its like rice but it has a totally different texture — a bit slippery, I’d say. I love that this dish is vegan, healthy, fat free (I used vegetable broth instead of oil to saute the onions and celery), and a delicious dish when you are in need of a comfort food. The celery adds some crunch, the texture of the orzo is delightfully different, and the kidney beans add the punch to fill you up with some fiber and protein. The recipe is below. I hope you enjoy!
NOTE: If you do use oil, I would not recommend canola, as it is usually GMO. Of course, I used veggie broth instead of chicken broth.
