Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat; add onion. Cook, stirring frequently, until tender. Add a tablespoon of the broth as needed.
  2. Meanwhile bring broth to a boil.
  3. Add Zone orzo and stir until broth is almost all absorbed, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Grate the zest from the orange and then squeeze out all the juice.
  5. Fluff the Zone orzo thoroughly with a fork and add both the zest and juice, along with the dill. Mix well. Cover tightly and set aside until serving time.
  6. Without removing the cover, heat just before serving in a microwave or a regular oven at 325°F.
  7. Serve hot over the broccoli slaw, sprinkled lightly with pistachios and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.
