Wild Rice and Orzo Pilaf

Wild Rice and Orzo Pilaf
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked wild rice
  • salt to taste
  • 1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups green onions, chopped


  1. Bring water, wild rice, and salt to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender, 30 to 45 minutes. Drain excess liquid, fluff rice with a fork, and cook uncovered 5 minutes more.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook orzo in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain.
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onions; cover and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in remaining 2 tablespoons butter, peas, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until combined, about 1 minute more.
  4. Pour rice and orzo into a serving dish. Stir in the pea mixture and green onions.
