"This dish is fast, easy, colorful, healthy, and delicious! Don't skip the chicken broth; it adds essential flavor to the dish. I like mine extra garlicky and go for the full 6 cloves, but it's plenty flavorful with less. You can use just about any veggies or meat in this recipe and it will still be great. I use all frozen veggies so I only need to shop for tomatoes, and even those I could use canned if I feel lazy, making this a true from-the-pantry meal with no shopping required."

  1. Bring chicken broth to a boil. Cook orzo in the boiling broth, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat; do not drain.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir turkey in the hot skillet until crumbly and evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Stir garlic and red pepper flakes into turkey; cook for 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium. Add spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, peas, carrots, orzo, and broth to the turkey mixture and cook, stirring often, until spinach is wilted and tomatoes begin to split, 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I usually use a heaping 1/2 teaspoon of the red pepper flakes. This dish is very light but the garlic and red pepper flakes give it tons of flavor!

I tried this recipe as written. Even though I use quality turkey, the end result was a "bleh" taste with a unpalatable texture. I think this recipe would do better without meat or perhaps lefto...

Used all veggies as recipe called but unfortunately cut the garlic in half. Found it better with added garlic salt. Will learn next time to keep garlic as indicated or even more. Didn't have che...
