Guys! Gals! Androids! I have something SO AWESOME to share with you…
and I’m not gonna.
maybe in a couple of days.
I know, I’m a tease. But would you expect anything less from Steamy Kitchen?
In the meantime, I wanted to share a how decisions get made in the Steamy household.
“Kids. We can’t have for supper. Are you crazy? Pick something else.”
(SIGH). How can I satisfy all?
GF-Adaptable: substitute orzo with GF pasta
1 pound orzo
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tsp kosher salt
3/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (from 2 bunches)
Cook orzo in a 6- to 8-quart pot of boiling salted water until tender. While orzo cooks, melt butter in a small heavy skillet over moderately low heat, then simmer until golden brown with a nutty aroma, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat, then stir in oil, cinnamon, and pepper. Drain orzo in a colander, then return to pot and add brown-butter mixture, scraping up any brown bits from bottom of skillet, and parsley. Toss until combined well and season with salt and a squeeze of lemon.

That is some fancy packaging for spices! I’m probably more of a Basil or Parsley person, but I on the last dish I made for my husband’s lunch, I used Ginger and Curry.
