Lemon, oregano and feta add zing to broccoli rabe tossed with whole-wheat orzo.


  • 1/2 cup orzo, preferably whole-wheat
  • 1 bunch broccoli rabe (about 1 pound), trimmed and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the orzo and cook 3 minutes less than the package directions. Add the broccoli rabe; cook 3 minutes more. Drain in a colander and gently press out as much water as possible.

Heat the oil in the pot over medium heat. Add the garlic; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the oregano, salt, pepper, the broccoli rabe and orzo. Cook, stirring, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in feta and lemon juice.
