I had leftover beef and broccoli from the Szechuan Hot Wok Carryout. I fixed it up a bit with onion, garlic, asparagus and tomato. Served it over plain white rice.

Orzo with Parmesan Tomatoes and Dill

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup chopped dill or dried dill eyeballing it
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 cup orzo
  • 1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese (6 ounces)


Preparation

Toss together oil, tomatoes, dill, zest, and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper in a large serving bowl. Let stand at least ten minutes
Meanwhile, cook orzo in a pasta pot of boiling salted water (1 1/2 tablespoons salt for 4 quarts water) until al dente
Drain orzo and toss with tomato mixture. Add cheese and toss again


I used 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped garlic instead of the lemon zest. I also "steam" heated the beans. YUMMY

Had some leftover stir fry and leftover rice. Measured the latter so hubby (diabetic) would know how much to eat, then made a great fried rice!

I bought them canned, but you can buy them dry(cheaper). The only other time I had them they were just cooked in a pressure cooker and served as a side dish.
They are a creamy texture bean, speckled with red when dry, that goes away when cooked. Your imagination or lack of is the only thing that can guide you on how to use. Add them to pasta, tossed salads, side dish, bean salad, soups, stews ect... I like to have meat free nights about once a week and making something with beans subs for the protein.
