This is like my youvetsi recipe minus the meat. It's a yummy side dish that can be prepared in very little time. Give it a try!

2

Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a Dutch oven pot or saucepan. Add onions and cook over medium-low heat until soft and golden. About 10-15 minutes. Add garlic and cook for about 5 minutes or until soft and golden. Add tomato puree, spices, salt and pepper.

3

Cook for 10 minutes until the sauce gets nice and thick. Add the chicken stock or water and bring to a boil. Pour the sauce in a baking dish and add the uncooked orzo. Bake covered with foil for about 25 minutes. Raise temperature to 400 degrees, remove the foil and cook for another 15 minutes uncovered.

4

Remove from the oven and add the ice cubes. Mix well. Garnish with parsley and parmesan cheese.
