Broccoli & orzo bowl

The Italians know a thing or two about food: namely that if it's top quality and fresh then little needs to be done to it to make a wonderful meal. That was the ethos I tried to embrace with this meal, and with the veg in the harvest freshly picked/cut/pulled up on a Saturday morning it couldn't get any fresher!

Serves 2

Vegetarian (depending on the cheese used)


150g orzo pasta
2 tbsp chilli-infused olive oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
150g purple sprouting broccoli
2-3 tbsp grated Parmesan


  1. Cook the pasta according to the pack instructions.
  2. In a large pan, heat the oil and then gently fry the garlic for a minute or two.
  3. Add the broccoli and stir to coat in oil, then cook for a few minutes until it begins to soften.
  4. Add the cooked & drained pasta to the frying pan and mix to combine all ingredients.
  5. Divide between your serving bowls and top with Parmesan.
  6. Eat immediately!

This recipe tastes even better made with vegetables from Community Harvest Whetstone :)
