1 3/4 Cups Of Jasmine Rice
1/4 Cup Of Orzo Pasta
4 1/4 Cups Of Vegetable Stock
A Minced Garlic Clove
Two Tablespoons Of Olive Oil
3/4 Teaspoon Of Sea Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Of Ground Black Pepper
1 1/4 Cups Of Basil Pesto Sauce (You Can Use Store Bought Pesto Sauce Or Use My Recipe Posted On This Web Site On 3/29/10)
A Cup Of Frozen Peas (Thawed)
1/4 Cup Of Chopped Scallions
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Add the olive oil, the garlic, the sea salt and the ground black pepper to a pot with a lid (that is large enough to hold the rice and the vegetable stock). Put the pot on medium high heat. Cook for one minute while stirring the garlic constantly. Add the rice and the orzo. Stir well so that the rice and the orzo get coated with the olive oil and the garlic. Add the vegetable stock. Stir one more time. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover and place the pot in the oven. Cook for 30-40 minutes until all of the liquid has been absorbed by the rice and the orzo.
Remove the pot from the oven. Stir in the basil pesto sauce, the peas and the scallions. Serve at once.
If you cannot find naan bread in your local supermarket, pita bread will work fine.
Two Eight Inch Naan Breads
8 Slices Of Mozzarella Cheese (Four Slices Per Pizza)
8 Thin Slices Of Prosciutto (Four Slices Per Pizza)
A Minced Garlic Clove
A Cup Of Frozen Broccoli Cuts (Thawed)
1/4 Cup Of Olive Oil
1/2 Teaspoon Of Sea Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Of Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
Combine the broccoli cuts, the garlic and the sea salt in a sauce pan. Add enough water to just cover the broccoli. Bring the mixture to a boil on high heat. Cook for three minutes. Drain the broccoli cuts in a colander and set them aside.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Brush the naan breads evenly with the olive oil. Sprinkle the top of each bread equally with the red pepper flakes. Place four slices of the prosciutto on top of each naan bread. Place an equal amount of broccoli on top of the prosciutto. Top with four slices of the mozzarella cheese on each pizza.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes until the cheese melts. Let the pizzas sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
