Dressing: I use my ownLemon Garlic! Just add 1 to 2 tsps of dried mint to it!

Preparation and Cooking step

Read instructions on the packet of Orzo Pasta you get. Recipes differ. But this should be a safe way to go in case there arent any instructions:

  1. Place large pan on low heat and add vegetable butter.
  2. Allow the butter to soften, and add the pasta.
  3. Turn fire to medium heat stir pasta in melted butter until they start darkening in color.
  4. Add the water
  5. Once the water boils, reduce to low heat, cover and let simmer until all the water is absorbed.

How to Serve

Make sure your veggies are washed. Once the orzo cools, add green mixture and mix, top with avocados and cherry tomatoes. Add dressing, mix and serve!
