Vegetarian Orzo dish with cucumbers and feta!

Whole wheat orzo pasta with cucumbers and feta cheese…delicious hot or cold!

What you will need:

  • 1 1/2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 cups Orzo whole wheat pasta
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1 English cucumber (wash, peel and chop into 1/4″ chunks)
  • 1 medium thin skinned lemon

Zest the lemon, slice in half and squeeze all juice into large bowl, then add feta cheese; chop cucumber and place on top. The Feta cheese will absorb much of the lemon juice making it extra zesty.

mix

 

 

 

 

 

Begin to cook pasta to an al dente firmness (about 8 minutes) according to  directions.

Drain pasta and rinse with cool water to eliminate starch and stop cooking process. Drizzle Olive Oil over pasta and mix to coat. Then add cucumber, feta and lemon and mix gently to coat. Salt & Pepper to taste.

  1. That looks delicious. But I don’t know if I can find whole wheat orzo around here. We did find some regular orzo, to my surprise when we were making a pasta salad several months ago during a review. Will have to try this. Thanks for sharing on Throwback Thursday Blog-Style. And thanks for your continued participation. Love seeing all your old posts. I can’t wait to see what you share this week.
