Mediterranean Shrimp with Orzo

Shrimp is a tasty and healthy way to get a large amount of protein that’s relatively low fat, leaving you satisfied and full for hours. Pair the shrimp with a sauce of tomatoes, onions, red bell pepper with just a bit of spice for a delicious dinner you can feel good about. If you’re living a low-carb lifestyle feel free to omit the orzo and replace it with a bed of spinach leaves.

Note: This recipe requires Suvie 2.0 and the Suvie Starch Cooker. To prepare this dish in Suvie 1.0, set the orzo to cook for 12 minutes in Step 3. Follow remaining instructions as directed.

Hi Jen, when cooking orzo in the Suvie Starch Cooker, do not add water to the pasta pot. Only add water to the top reservoir.
