How to Make Mushroom Orzo

  1. Medium heat the olive oil in a large non-stick pan.
  2. As the oil is heated, add the mushrooms. Cook until softened, for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the stove and set aside.

  4. Increase the heat to medium-high. Add the orzo, salt and pepper. Stir properly and put the lid on. Bring it to a simmer. Leave it to cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until the orzo turns firm and gooey.
  5. Once orzo is cooked, remove the pan from the stove. Add in the parmesan cheese, spinach and cooked mushrooms.
