Beetroot Orzotto3.8/5 (BASED ON 44 reviews)
Orzotto is the name for our lighter, risotto-style dish made with small, rice-shaped pasta called “orzo”, which has a velvety texture when cooked. Fresh beetroot gives this its distinctive colour and is paired with our mustard seed, peppercorn and dill blend. A white wine reduction provides depth and the creamy goat's cheese melts into the pasta along with wilted rocket. This dish is excellent as a light supper and can be made extra decadent with some smoked salmon on top.

Our 30 minute recipe
Boil 400ml of water in your kettle. Melt the butter in a non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Add the onion. Stir occasionally to soften it for 3 mins, then add the Mustard Dill Seasoning and mix it in.
Add the orzo pasta and fry for 1 min, then add the White Wine Reduction and a splash of water to the pan. Add the beetroot and mix well.
Add the Orzotto Stock with 400ml boiling water. Bring it to the boil then cover with a lid (slightly askew), reduce the heat to medium-low and let it cook for 15-20 mins, stirring every so often. You can add 100ml more water if it’s getting too dry.
When the pasta is cooked to your liking (it should be soft, like risotto), stir in half of the goat’s cheese. Add a handful of rocket and stir it in to wilt it.
Serve the pasta in bowls, topped with some fresh rocket and a couple of teaspoons of goat’s cheese as garnish, which will slowly melt. If you’re having smoked salmon, arrange the slices on top of the orzotto.

We left off the salmon and used a tiny bit of grated cheddar over the top and OH MY DAYS IT WAS AMAZING .My new fave. Ordered it again.

Really good. Not a fan of salmon so I used sliced chicken and it was really tasty
Zoe - Jul 21, 2018
Didn’t think I would like this but was pleasantly surprised
Tess - Jul 11, 2018
Beautiful flavours albeit just slightly saltier than I would have gone for. Very easy to cook and delightful texture.
Lydia - Jul 01, 2018
Was yum ! But a tad salty less is always better!
christopher - Jun 29, 2018
It was OK but not as tasty as other ones.
Ciara - Jun 25, 2018
In hindsight, I maybe would have not bothered with the Goats Cheese, as it ruined the flavour of the beetroot for me. Loved the texture of the Orzo rice though, definitely would love to cook with it again!
John - Jun 17, 2018
Alternated goats cheese for Caerphilly, and used proscutio crudo instead of salmon, worked well
Stephanie - Jun 07, 2018
Yummy....Well worth a try!

Emma - May 21, 2018

Actually foul. I couldn’t finish more than two spoonfuls and I will pretty much eat anything.
Victoria - Apr 24, 2018
It was strange
Sian - Apr 14, 2018
Tastes as good as it looks.. absolutely recommend! We will be ordering this one again for sure :)
Charlotte - Apr 12, 2018
I enjoyed this but compared to other meals we have had from simply cook it was a little bland.
Helen - Apr 05, 2018
It was a bit of an odd combination of flavours... Not unpleasant, but not moorish either......????
Hayley - Mar 20, 2018
I really enjoyed this one!! Much more than I expected
Allison - Mar 14, 2018
Ian - Mar 10, 2018
Nice, not in dinner size quantities
Ryan - Mar 07, 2018
Unbeetable! Really different and delicious!
Julia - Mar 06, 2018
Unusual dish, but tasty. Its the first time I've ever used orzo and certainly won't be the last. Its quite salty, and could do with more feta, but that would make it saltier. However it is a nice veggie meal.
Sarah - Mar 05, 2018
This was lovely - very different!
Martyn - Mar 01, 2018
So good it got me eating beetroot!

So good it got me eating beetroot!
Christine - Feb 27, 2018
Both love this. So easy to prepare; so very healthy and so low-cal. Jim prefers it with a dodge of single cream; I have it neat :)!
Danielle - Feb 27, 2018
Didn’t love this but it was average. Like a vegi only dish and nice to try orzo. Didn’t go as purple as picture either
Mary - Feb 25, 2018
This was the worst recipe. My husband and I hated it. In the bin!
Kristy - Feb 19, 2018
I wasn’t sure about this one, but my other half loves beetroot, so I thought it was worth a try, and I’m so pleased I did because it was AMAZING. I’ve already put another on my next order!
John - Dec 18, 2017
A hearty, warming vegetarian dish for a week day supper.
Michele - Dec 18, 2017
This dish is perfect for a meat free Monday. The orzo pasta adds a nice change and the lemon and dill adds a subtle tang. The goats cheese and rocket add a restaurant style finish to the dish. Surprisingly filling.
Jason - Dec 18, 2017
Very tasty, dramatic looking dish. Strong tangy flavours softened by the creamy goat's cheese. The orzo was pleasantly chewy not soft. Bit salty but I would definitely eat again.
Paula - Dec 18, 2017
Extremely tasty, different dish with interesting texture and colour
Stephen - Dec 18, 2017
What a lovely surprise. I never know that beetroot with pasta could be that tasty. Another delicious vegetarian masterpiece that we be having again and again.
Jayne - Dec 18, 2017
We enjoyed it very much as it was so different. It was worth finding the orzo to get the right texture. It had depth of flavour, vibrant colour and was easy to make. We added a crunch in the form of a grilled garlic flat bread
