Noah’s Orzo-Rice Pilaf

Orzo-Rice Pilaf Recipe

A while back, Rice-A-Roni was a thing, and my kids loved it. I didn’t love all the additives in it, so I created my own version. Noah knows his way around a kitchen. Noah’s Orzo-Rice Pilaf appeared as part of the meal Noah cooked for Faith in Honor of a Hunter.

Course Side Dish
Servings 8 servings


  • 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil, I use a mixture of half butter and half oil

  • 1 cup regular long-grain rice
  • 4 cups broth of choice, beef, chicken, vegetable, depending on main course
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives


  • In a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add orzo. Cook until golden, stirring often, about 10 minutes.
