Roasted Broccoli  Orzo

Olive Oil

Broccoli Florets







Salt Pepper

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. On a sheet pan, toss the broccoli with olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread it across the pan.

Roast the broccoli until it is tender but still crisp and lightly browned on the edges, about 10 minutes.

While the broccoli roasts, simmer the orzo on the stove in salted boiling water until al dente according to the recommended cook time on the package.

Warm the olive oil over medium heat. Sauté the garlic, letting it become fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Stir in the orzo and lemon juice. Give the orzo a minute to absorb some of the juice.

Stir in the roasted broccoli, scallions, parsley, almonds and lemon zest. Taste the orzo and season with more salt and pepper as needed.
