Delicious (Orzo I’ve been told…)

Orzo. That fun little rice-shaped pasta that finally can be found in organic, whole wheat form. (Yes, I’m trying to avoid teh white stuff.)

The nice thing about orzo is that like our other new friends quinoa and brown rice, it can take on a variety of delicious personalities.  Tonight we’re having is as a cold salad, with chickpeas and grape tomatoes.  Enjoy!

Orzo and Chickpea Salad

6 oz whole wheat orzo, cooked according to package directions and rinsed in cold water.

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1 cup grape tomatoes, quartered

3T balsamic vinegar

1T olive oil

handfull of flat leaf parsley, chopped

salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients, let “meld” in fridge for at least an hour.

We’re having this tonight with seared scallops.
