Cranberry Orzo Salad


In the process of cleaning up my Google drive, where I store all of my blog photos and recipes, I came across a folder of pictures and recipes that I had never shared with you. Since I missed a whole week's worth of food to blog while on vacation, it was the perfect time to dip into some of these recipes and finally get around to sharing them with you.

Many moons ago I was searching the grocery store for Chinese Five Spice. This was a few years ago and I went to four stores before I was finally able to find it. It absolutely cracks me up now that I can walk into any grocery store and now it just hangs out on the shelf, right between the dried chives and dill.

Anyway, I bought the spice for a recipe and then never found anything else to do with it. One weekend I had some extra free time in the kitchen and decided that creating a recipe from scratch using the Chinese Five Spice was going to be my goal for the evening. This is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy it!

    • 1/2 cup orzo
    • 2 cups chicken broth
    • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
    • 2 tbsp. Chinese Five Spice 
    • 2 green onion, diced
    • salt and pepper, to taste 
1. Bring the chicken broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the orzo and cook according to package directions. Drain.
2. While orzo is still hot, stir in dried cranberries, Chinese Five Spice and salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with green onions.

This pairs really nicely with pork, chicken and turkey. I served it with a glazed chicken breast.
