orzo with spinach and feta.
Today’s been a gift of a day. One of those days where, without even trying, I find myself present in each little moment, way more patient with my kids, grateful for all the small things. Definitely not like last week, when I was cranky and horrible and trying way too hard to be neither of those things. Funny how life works.
And so because today feels surprisingly refreshing, this recipe seems appropriate to share. Perfect for spring. Light and tasty.
A Springy side, ready in 15 minutes. Enjoy!
Orzo with Spinach and Feta
(Adapted from Martha Stewart’s Great Food Fast, serves 4)
What You’ll Need:
1/2 pound orzo
1 bunch spinach, washed and roughly chopped
1/2 cup chopped mint or basil
1/2 cup feta cheese (I used light feta)
juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper
Cook orzo according to the package instructions. Stir in the spinach until the spinach wilts, then drain.
In a separate bowl, toss the spinach and orzo with the remaining ingredients. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
