Garlic and Parmesan Orzo

This one pan orzo is savory, garlicky, and just a touch sweet from the shallots and thyme. The parmesan adds creaminess without making it heavy.

Sauté the shallots until they are deeply browned and caramelized.

Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute, just until it has started to soften.

Deglaze the pan with white wine, scraping up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan.

Stir in the orzo and sauté until lightly toasted, about 1 to 2 minutes.

Add the chicken broth, fresh thyme, sea salt, and ground black pepper. Stir to combine.

Increase the heat to medium-high to bring it to a gentle boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring often.

Once the orzo is cooked through and most of the liquid has been absorbed, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the parmesan.

Serve warm and enjoy!
