A Recipe from Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites

Orzo and Green Herbs

Serves 4

Total preparation time: 15 minutes

This is a handsome, quickly prepared dish, and when the hot pasta warms the fresh herbs and extra-virgin olive oil, a lovely fragrance is released.  Orzo and Green Herbs can accompany steamed or roasted vegetables, main-dish salads, or simple grilled or broiled fish.  

6 or 8 cups water

1 cup orzo (about 7 ounces)

1 cup finely chopped mixed fresh herbs (thyme, chives, garlic, chives, basil, sage, oregano, parsley, marjoram, chervil, tarragon)

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt freshly ground

black pepper to taste

Bring the water to a rolling boil in a large, covered pot.  Stir in the orzo and cook for about 7 minutes, until al dente.

Place the herbs, oil, salt, and pepper in a serving bowl.  When the pasta is ready, drain it and add it to the bowl.  Toss well and serve immediately.

This is one of my favorite cookbooks (out of dozens of cookbooks)! The dishes are healthy and tasty. I like the variety of recipes - soups, pizza, sandwiches, desserts, Asian, Southern, East Indian, fish, etc. My favorites are the soups and entrees.

I got this cookbook when I was just starting out as a vegetarian (most of the recipies are vegetarian). It made cooking much easier because the recipies are healthy and balanced. The nutrition info is listed for every recipe.

I have a longstanding obsession with the Moosewood cookbook series, and this was a welcome addition. It truly is low-fat, wihtout sacrificing flavor. A few ingredients are hard to come by, but they have easy substitutions. I would recommend the Harira. Highly.
