Italian Vegetable Orzo Rice

Italian Vegetable Orzo Rice

Italian vegetable orzo rice is my ideal perfect lunch. I still ask myself why I haven’t posted a recipe on this delectable dish all this while…. But this is going to change today. I absolutely love orzo rice and just a combination of this special rice with stir fried vegetables makes a perfect palatable dish.

Orzo is an Italian name for barley otherwise known as risoni or big rice. It is a type of rice in the form of short-cut pasta, shaped as a big grain of rice. Orzo can be cooked in several ways and can be served alone or together with other dishes like salad or pilaf.


I love the colorful look which, powdered curry gives to this dish, along with lots of vegetables such as carrots, peas, bell peppers, cauliflower, broccoli etc.

Adding some powdered curry and few other spices directly to the orzo rice really boosts up the color and flavor thus making the dish just super delicious. This Italian vegetable orzo rice dish is very simple to make, delicious and colorful.  It is just a perfect winter lunch as well as a wonderful addition to any festive lunch spread.

Simply follow the steps outlined below to prepare your own version of Italian vegetable orzo rice.
