Do you already know Risoni? It’s a pasta in the shape of rice, also called Orzo. If you’re often cooking rice or pasta, it’s great to have something else for a change. I was inspired for this risoni with red pesto and goat cheese by the Dutch foodblog Chick Loves Food. Their recipe was in Dutch and contained meat, so I’m sharing a vegetarian recipe in English on my page.
I made this dish with the chickpea flour risoni from webshop Koro. This chickpea flour risoni is high in proteins, organic and is done in just 3-4 minutes. Perfect for weekdays when you don’t want to spend much time in the kitchen.
