Creamy Whole Wheat Orzo Risotto (low fat)


  • 1.5 cups Delallo whole wheat orzo (my personal preference)
  • 1 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Squeeze of lemon


  1. Add orzo, broth, salt and pepper to a pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until orzo is tender, approximately 10 minutes. If all the liquid is absorbed and the orzo is not tender, add a little more liquid.
  2. Stir in the lemon and butter and serve. At this point add additional water if you’d like the orzo to be a bit creamier.
