Oregano Orzo

I asked for risotto, but I got orzo from my mom instead. I’ve never cooked with it so I’ve found a few recipes that I’m trying. In this one I left in the garlic, when the recipe says to take it out because why not?


  • 1/2 cup uncooked orzo
  • water
  • salt
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, sliced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 TBSP lemon juice
  • 2 TBSP oregano
  • pepper


1) Cook the orzo in salted water.

2) Drain and let sit.

3) Heat the oil in a large pan to low-medium heat.

4) Add the garlic and cook until it begins to brown, 3-5 minutes.

5) Remove from the heat and add the tomatoes, lemon juice, and oregano.

6) Add the orzo and pepper, mix and serve.
