Orzo Salad

Orzo salad recipes by the Chefs Double Energy Twins, featuring Andean Dream quinoa pasta | Andean Dream Quinoa Products

Chefs: The Double Energy Twins

Preparation: Yields 2 - 4 servings

Enjoy the burst of lemon flavor in this orzo salad! The chopped parsley and mint give a refreshing twist to this dish, which can be served equally well as a side or main. Andean Dream's Quinoa Orzo pasta is ideal because its al-dente texture pairs well with the green onions and bell pepper! We have prepared different variations of this salad by adding cashews and/or fresh corn kernels. 

  1. Cook orzo according to directions and stir frequently.

  2. Place cooked orzo in a large bowl.

  3. Add green onions, celery, red bell pepper, parsley, and mint to orzo mixture.

  4. In a separate bowl add olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, black pepper and sea salt. Stir well.

  5. Stir lemon juice dressing into orzo mixture. Chill and serve.

Spaghetti With Fresh Peas, Garlic, and Tarragon

Delicious spaghetti recipe by Chef Martha Rose Shulman featuring Andean Dream quinoa pasta | Andean Dream Quinoa Products

Chef: Martha Rose Shulman

Preparation: Yields 2 - 4 servings

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt generously, keeping in mind that you will be adding 1/2 cup of this water to the finished pasta (but don’t be too generous!). Add spaghetti and set timer for 5 minutes less than the cooking time suggested on package. At the same time, begin warming a pasta bowl.

Meanwhile combine olive oil and sliced garlic in a small skillet or saucepan and heat over medium-low heat until oil begins to bubble around the garlic slices. Watch garlic closely and cook until it just begins to color and smell fragrant. Remove from heat and pour oil and garlic into pasta bowl.

When timer goes off add peas to pasta water. Boil for another 5 minutes. Ladle out 1/2 cup cooking water from pasta and set aside. Drain pasta and peas and toss immediately in the warm pasta bowl with oil and garlic, reserved water from the pasta, herbs, parmesan cheese, and pepper. Serve at once. 


  • 1 pound fresh english peas (1 cup shelled)
