Need some recipe inspiration using Orzo pasta? This simple pasta salad is a perfect Spring dish, finished with a zesty hit of Cornish Sea Salt and packed with green veggies. I deal served cold to take to the park or serve in the garden with friends and family! 


Add a large nob of butter to a large frying pan or shallow casserole dish. Add your leek & gently cook until softened.

Finely slice your cabbage & add to the pan along with the fennel seeds & garlic clove. Gently cook for a 5 mins. 

Add your orzo & stir thoroughly to combine. Pour over the hot stock & cook for 10 mins with the lid off. 

Meanwhile grate your courgettes. Once the orzo is cooked, add half the courgette. 

Allow to cool & then add the remaining courgette & watercress.  

Serve on a platter sprinkled with Parmesan, toasted pine nuts & lemon zest and season with Cornish Sea Salt Flakes or try with our Fresh & Zesty blend for an indulgent citrus finish.
