Orzo is a small, rice-shaped pasta, made bright and savory here with fresh mint and chicken broth.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
6 cups  reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon  extra-virgin olive oil
1   large onion, diced
2 cups  orzo
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1/3 cup  chopped fresh mint
DIRECTIONS
Bring broth to a simmer in a large saucepan over medium heat.


Meanwhile, heat oil in a large deep skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add orzo and cook, stirring constantly, until lightly toasted, 3 to 5 minutes.


Add 1 cup simmering broth to the pan. Cook, stirring constantly with a long-handled spoon, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 1 minute.


Adjust heat as necessary to maintain a simmer. Continue cooking and stirring, adding broth 1 cup at a time, until orzo is tender but still firm, 15 to 20 minutes total. Season with pepper, stir in mint and serve.
