Mexican Orzo Skillet

Well… here goes nothing. My first blog post! 

Today I would like to share this super easy Mexican Orzo Skillet with you guys. It’s can be made vegetarian or vegan. This particular time  I made it totally vegan! 🙂 Making things 100% Vegan is pretty hard for me as 1) I am not a vegan and 2) I’m from Wisconsin which means I eat more cheese that any human possibly needs.  

This is a great meal to make on a busy work-night as you can make it all in one skillet. Which you know what that means! NO DISHES.. okay.. one dish.. I can handle that! 🙂 

To make vegan – use vegan cheese or nutritional yeast. I thought this particular recipe was really good with nutritional yeast. Nom Nom Nom

 

After you cook it all up, serve with some fresh lime juice, cilantro, your favorite hot sauce and some nutritional yeast, vegan cheese, or your favorite cheese. This dish was so ooey and gooey without any cheese, but feel free to indulge. Don’t forget to garnish with some ripe avocado. Can you believe for a good portion of my adult life I did not like avocado..? Crazy, huh? I now love avocados. The compliment this dish so well!
