Toasted Orzo, Mushroom & Kale Skillet Supper

with Chive Cream

Cooking time

20 minutes




570 /serving

A nifty trick or two makes for a meal to remember. It’s worth taking a moment to toast the tiny pasta in a pan with leeks and garlic to give it some nutty interest. It continues to cook directly in vegetable demi-glace along with sautéed mushrooms and kale (along with our Old Country spice blend). Finish your orzo with butter for a velvety texture before you ladle it out with a dollop of chive-flecked sour cream.

Sauté the vegetables
In a large, high-sided pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the mushrooms, 3 to 5 min., until browned and beginning to soften; season with ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Add the kale and sauté, 2 to 3 min., until the kale has wilted. Transfer to a plate and reserve the pan.

Start the skillet
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Cook the leeks, garlic and orzo, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 min., until the aromatics are fragrant and the orzo is toasted. Add the vegetables, demi-glace, 2 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions), the remaining spices and S&P; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, 11 to 13 min., until the orzo is just tender.
