Instructions

Get Prepped
1
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Quarter the mushrooms, halving any larger quarters.
  • Halve the chilli lengthways. Deseed and finely chop.
  • Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).
Soften the Veg
2
  • Place a large pot over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, fry the garlic, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes until softened, stirring occasionally, 4-6 mins.
Cook the Orzo
3
  • Add the muscat, 400ml water, ½ tsp sugar, ½ tsp salt and 1 tbsp butter (double all for 4p) to the pot.
  • Stir in half the parsley along with the orzo and chopped chilli (use less if you don't like spice). 
  • Bring to the boil, cover and simmer until the orzo is tender, 15-20 mins. 
  • Stir every 3-4 mins to prevent sticking.
  • Stir through the creme fraiche and half the cheese then season to taste with salt and pepper.
