  • 1/2 cup orzo

  • Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the orzo. Cook and stir the orzo until it all turns a golden brown. Add the onion and cook until translucent. Then add the garlic and cook for about a minute longer.

Simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed. 20-25 minutes. Remove from heat, let stand for a few minutes and then fluff with fork before serving. Enjoy!
