One pot orzo with turkey and celery

Singlemade: one-pot orzo with turkey and celery

The one pot pasta with fennel and cherry tomatoes was a big hit. It was such a big hit that I created a new one-pot-recipe. It’s another pasta, but it’s disguised as rice because orzo is a sneaky rice-impersonator! 😉

I do have to confess that this one-pot takes a teensy bit more work than the last one. And with teensy, I mean that the turkey has to be fried first, but afterwards, you just throw in all the other ingredients and 15 minutes later it’s dinner time! 😉

I’m convinced that this one pot will be another hit! 🙂

Instructions
  1. Rinse the turkey filet under cold water and dab it dry with a paper towel.
  2. Heat a wok pan over a high heat and add a generous dash of oil. While the pan heats, cut the turkey into cubes. Add to the pan and leave to fry for about 3 minutes without stirring.
  3. In the meantime, peel the onion and was the courgette and the celery. Stir the turkey cubes and cut the onion into crescents over the turkey. Leave to fry without stirring for another 3 minutes.
  4. Dice the celery, add it to the turkey and stir. Cut the courgette into crescents, add them and stir.
  5. Immediately add the orzo, the water and the soy cream. Crumble the bouillon over the wok and stir together. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and leave to simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes without a lid. Season to taste with pepper and salt. This one-pot will be ready as soon as the orzo is done.
Recipe Notes

Tip: You can always replace the turkey with chicken.

Tip: Spinach-lover? Stir in a handful of fresh spinach leaves at the last minute.

Stijn and Caroline liked it, but they did remark that you’ve got to like celery. 🙂 Caroline’s Tip for the non-celery-lovers: halve the amount of celery and add spinach in the end (see the notes!).

Stijn’s Tip: If you like adding some extra flavour, add a chicken spice mix!
