1 tsp ground turmeric
2 cups uncooked orzo
2 tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, sliced

Recipe Directions for Orzo with Kale

Bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a boil; sprinkle the tumeric over the boiling water and stir in the orzo; return to a boil.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the garlic in the hot oil for a few seconds until it begins to bubble. Stir the kale into the garlic, cover the skillet with a lid and cook for 10 minutes. Remove the cover and continue cooking and stirring until the kale is tender, about 10 minutes more. Stir the kale miXture into the orzo along with the lemon juice, nutmeg and Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
