  • About

Tiny pasta such as orzo takes about half the time to cook as Arborio rice—the traditional choice for risotto—but the cooking method yields an equally creamy outcome. This side dish goes well with Nut-Crusted Tofu or a sprinkle of pistachios. It’s ready in less than 30 minutes, so you can enjoy carb-loading without spending all night in the kitchen.
