When it comes to pasta, I’m currently obsessed with all things orzo! You typically see it at restaurants as a cold pasta salad, and it’s nothing to write home about. However, there is so much to play around with when it comes to this pasta. Believe it or not, there was a long period of time where I couldn’t even find it. So if you struggle to find this particular pasta you’re not alone!
Let’s talk Greek food! My husband and I love all things Greek so I love to replicate the staple flavors with veggie packed dishes. One dish they are known for, is lamb meatballs. While I don’t do lamb, I love the combination of the flavors, the tzatziki sauce, fresh cucumber etc. The best part? You can easily tap into all these components sans animal products!
What’s great about this recipe? Everything! It features pantry staples, it’s filling affordable, can be made gluten free, packs plant protein, fiber, tons of flavor, the meatballs can easily be made in bulk, it’s perfect for any season, you can pair the meatballs with a salad rather than pasta, and it’s just so good!
