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.

Our 30 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Cook the onion 

    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.

  • 2.

    Add the beetroot 

    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.

  • 3.

    Let it simmer 

    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.

  • 4.

    Add the goat's cheese 

    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.

  • 5.


    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 walnuts, sprinkle them on top and get stuck in.

A bit too beetrooty for me.

Alicja - Jun 28, 2018

It doesn’t kill your taste buds by being super spicy, which is a nice change for me since I use Simply Cook. It has a nice and unique flavour. I used macaroni pasta instead :)

Beetroot was the overpowering taste so we could not taste the herb /spice pots!

Harry - Apr 22, 2018

Not for me.

Jonathan - Feb 28, 2018

My husband liked it, unfortunately I had an unfortunate experience as a child with beetroot soup. I am keen to try everything we are given, but not beetroot again

Luca - Feb 16, 2018

Beetroot and goat's cheese or feta just match well. No exception in this unusual dish here.
