The New Kitchen Cookbook


Orzo is Italian for barley, though it sounds like rice and is made of pasta. Orzo is sometimes called risoni (big rice). I moved it here to the rice chapter after the restructuring of the pasta chapter because it cooks like rice.



  1. Heat broth in a small pot.
  2. Toast pine nuts in dry sauce pan. Remove.
  3. Add oil to the pan and toast orzo in it.
  4. Add broth gradually, as with risotto.
