  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups orzo pasta
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs (dill, parsley, chives, etc.)


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together ingredients for dressing. Set aside.
  2. Wash asparagus and snap off tough end pieces. Lay in a 9×13 inch glass baking dish. Pour boiling water over asparagus to cover. Let stand until water is warm, about 10 minutes. Drain water and cut asparagus into 2-inch pieces.
  3. Meanwhile, bring chicken stock, turmeric and salt to a boil in a large pot. Add orzo and cook until tender, 8-10 minutes. Drain but do not rinse.
  4. Place the warm orzo in a large bowl and toss with the asparagus, herbs and dressing. Mix well. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
