1 cup orzo
2 tablespoons vegan butter (I prefer Willow Run) or 1/3 tablespoon olive oil
1/3 onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
3 tablespoons oil packed sundried tomatoes, finely chopped
3 to 4 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
salt and pepper, to taste
1. Boil the orzo according to package directions, until al dente. Drain.
2. In a large pan, melt butter, and place the onion and garlic in this pan, sauté until golden brown.
3. Add the orzo and sundried tomatoes. Allow the orzo mixture to cook on low heat for a few minutes, to allow all the flavors to soak into the pasta.
4. Toss in fresh basil, and add salt and pepper, to taste. Take off heat, serve, and enjoy!
This is an excellent side dish for soup and salad.
