Anyone else out there struggle with side dishes? Seriously, I need some advice from you dinner planning rock stars out there - you know who you are. Can you help a girl out? I am in need of some simple and healthy side dishes that I can put together in less than 5 minutes with ingredients that I already have on hand and will make my family think I'm a superhero.
I will start the ball rolling and kick off this side dish sharing-fest with one of my new favorite side dishes. This simple orzo salad is delicious and really highlights all of the fresh herbs that I have growing in my garden right now. You can substitute any fresh herbs that you love and put this together for dinner tonight and prove to your family that you ARE a side dish rock star.
Orzo with Fresh Herbs
1 Tablespoon butter
1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
2 cups chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup fresh herbs (flat leaf parsley, basil and thyme)
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Stir in lemon juice and fresh herbs.
This is a great side dish for almost any meal. Fish, chicken, steak - you name it.
