Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Soak the sun-dried tomatoes

Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil for the orzo. In a small bowl, soak the sun-dried tomatoes in very hot tap water until softened, about 10 minutes. Drain and pat dry, then coarsely chop. Meanwhile, prepare the orzo.

2

Cook the orzo

To the pot of boiling water, add the orzo and cook until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain, reserving ¼ cup [½ cup] pasta cooking water. Meanwhile, prepare the pine nuts and the vegetables.

3

Toast the pine nuts

In a dry large frying pan over medium-low heat, toast the pine nuts, stirring often, until lightly browned and fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool. Do not clean the pan.

4

Prep and cook the vegetables; finish the dish

  • Cut the broccoli into long spears; halve or quarter any thick spears lengthwise. 
  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure ¼ cup [½ cup]. 

In the same pan used for the pine nuts, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the broccoli and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the onion, sun-dried tomatoes, and as many chile flakes as you like and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion starts to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. 

Stir in the orzo and reserved pasta cooking water and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the pistou. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Serve

Transfer the orzo and vegetables to individual bowls. Garnish with the pine nuts and goat cheese and serve.
