One Pot Sausage, Spinach and Mushroom Orzo


Such a simple dish but rich in flavor and made using only one pot. Similar to a risotto dish but using the rice shaped pasta, Orzo.

Ingredients

16 oz of orzo

16 oz of Mushrooms, sliced

10-12 oz of spinach

1 rounded tbsp of minced garlic

1 tbsp of Better Than Bouillon Vegetable Base

Roughly 3 cups of water, or more

1/2 cup of Vegan Mozzarella

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

1/2 tsp of garlic salt

1/2 tsp of pepper

Pinch of crushed red pepper

1/3 cup of Vegan Cream Cheese

Follow Your Heart Parmesan

1 tbsp Olive oil

2 tbsps of Butter

Vegetable oil

Directions

Heat a large dutch pan over medium high heat

Add in your olive oil and mushrooms

Cook for 5 minutes stirring often

Add in your garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes

Remove mushrooms and garlic from pan and set aside for later

In the same pan add a little oil, roughly 2 tbsps

Crumble in your Vegan Sausage

Cook until browned

Add in your Orzo and mix well

Add in your bouillon and water

Enough water to make sure the orzo and sausage are covered but not drenched

Cook for 2 minutes and then add in your mushrooms

Turn heat to medium and cover

Cook for 12-20 minutes

Check and stir every so often to make sure the orzo doesn't stick to pan

(Add more liquid if orzo isn't cooking)

After orzo is cooked and most the liquid has evaporated add in your spinach

Mix well

Add in mozzarella, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper

Add in your butter and cream cheese

Mix well

Turn off heat and let sit 5 minutes before serving

Plate and garnish with Parmesan
