Creamy Orzo

This simple pasta dish is a fast and easy substitute for risotto.

2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 of a yellow onion, finely minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound orzo
4 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1/4 cup white wine
salt and pepper to taste
  1. Warm the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat until it begins to shimmer just a bit. Add the onion and saute until the onion is slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the orzo and cook until most of the orzo is golden in color.
  2. Stir in the broth and wine and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the orzo has absorbed most of the liquid, about 15 minutes.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
