This rice dish takes the classic flavors of the viral “Marry-me chicken” and transforms it into a creamy side. It has a unique flavor that’s sophisticated enough to serve on Yom Tov, and soft enough to complement any protein. Plus, it’s pretty easy to throw together.


Sun-Dried Tomato Spinach Orzotto

  • 2 cups Gefen Orzo, prepared according to package directions

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 12 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 8 cups fresh spinach leaves

  • 1 cup diced Tuscanini Sun-Dried Tomatoes, packed in oil

  • salt, to taste

  • pepper, to taste

  • 1 cup Gefen Almond or soy milk

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

  • 2 tablespoons honey



Heat the oil in a sauté pan and add garlic. Allow garlic to fry for two to three minutes, or until the ends get slightly golden. Add the spinach and sauté until all leaves are wilted. Add the orzo, sun-dried tomatoes, salt, and pepper, and stir until everything is evenly incorporated.


Add the soy milk, broth, and basil. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and allow to simmer for five to 10 minutes, mixing to prevent burning. When it’s ready, you should be able to pull a spoon through the orzo with no liquid pooling at the bottom of the pot. Serve hot.

It says 2 tablespoons honey in the list of ingredients, but doesn’t mention it in the directions. Please clarify.
