I used to be intimidated to make fancy-sounding or ethnic dishes from scratch. After all, what do I know about that? I've never been to cooking school or had any formal training.
When I got my VitaClay I realized how easy it is to make amazingly flavorful and seemingly complicated dishes, and that just an addition of a spice or different vegetable can result in an entirely new dish.
I have had a lifelong obsession with mushrooms--I'll eat them with anything, anywhere, in any shape or form. I also love hazelnuts, and I don't like spending too much valuable time cooking in the kitchen every day. (I enjoy cooking, but let's be honest: there are only so many hours). So one-pot meals in VitaClay have become my new best friend. I don't have to have a degree in cooking and I don't need to hire a personal chef to have delicious, healthy whole-food meals cooked from scratch every day!
This long-grain rice and orzo is simmered in nutrient-dense homemade broth with hazelnuts and mushrooms and seasoned with parsley and marjoram. We created this to incorporate two of our favorites: hazelnuts and mushrooms. It combines rice, orzo pasta, and lots of other goodies - very delicious! Do I deserve a Michelin Star or what?!
