Eating orzo, especially when paired with other nutritious foods, might give you the energy boost you’ve been looking for. Our brains and bodies love using carbohydrates as fuel, of which there are plenty in orzo.

    In the past, Greek villagers made pasta mostly in the summertime when they could dry it naturally. They would then keep it in the cellar of their homes and cook it in winter. It was thus a very convenient and easy food to prepare and a wonderful solution to feed a large and hungry family both economically and in a most nourishing way. The shape, size and cooking method of the Greek traditional pasta varies, depending on the region.

    Though it looks a little like rice, orzo is actually a small pasta in the shape of rice! It's often used in Mediterranean diet recipes like Italian and Greek cuisine. In traditional Italian cooking, orzo is used in soups and broths, but it's also great as a side dish and in pasta salads. It's popular across Europe, particularly in Greece, where it's known as krithiraki. Quick and easy to prepare, with amazing taste and unlimited choices like vegetables, meat, fish or poultry to combine with.

    Eating more pasta, including orzo, is a good way to keep you full longer. In 2009 the British Journal of Nutrition found that consumption of pasta may help you take in less food per day (Source: Livestrong).

    Storage Instructions: Store in a clean, dry and cool place. In a pan over medium heat add olive oil & Orzotto. Stir until the pasta is lightly toasted for 3 minutes, then add 400ml of broth. Cook, stirring periodically to prevent pasta from sticking to the pan until the broth has been absorbed, about 3 minutes. Repeat with another 400ml broth until the liquid has been absorbed, 5 minutes more. Test the doneness of the pasta. Remove the Orzotto pan from the heat and vigorously stir in the Parmesan cheese and butter. Season to taste.
