- 2 Tablespoons Butter
- ½ cup orzo pasta
- ¼ cup onion diced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- ½ cup long grain white rice
- 2 cups chicken broth
- ½ teaspoon dried parsley
- ¼ to ½ teaspoon salt to taste
Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in orzo pasta and cook until golden brown.
Add in onion and cook until translucent, then add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir so that the garlic does not burn.
Mix in the rice and chicken broth. Turn up to high heat and bring to a boil.
Add parsley and salt. Cover and reduce to medium-low and simmer until liquid has been absorbed and the rice is fluffy and tender. Approximately 20 to 25 minutes.
Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork and garnish if fresh parsley if desired.
