Our kosher catering team prepares kosher meals which we provide to less fortunate people through out the year. Kosher comfort food is a good staple because it provides both nutrition and substance.
Orzo with peas, olives, tarragon and pecans makes a delicious comfort food meal which is both vegetarian and vegan.
Orzo is a rice shaped pasta that stems from Greek cuisine. It is a wonderful comfort food.
Our team would like to share this recipe from The Vegan Gourmet by Susann Geiskopf Hadler and Mindy Toomay with our dear friends and patrons.
Teaspoon of salt
Two tablespoons of lemon juice
Two tablespoons of minced black olives
One tablespoon of minced tarragon leaves
One clove of minced garlic
One tablespoon of black pepper
Three tablespoons of chopped pecans
One cup of dried orzo
One pound of peas
Two teaspoons of olive oil
Six lemon wedges
Boil six cups of water in a saucepan with a pinch of salt. In a small bowl combine the lemon juice, olives, tarragon, garlic and pepper and set aside at room temperature. Place pecans in a mediums skillet over medium to high heat and cook for several minutes. The pecans should become brown.
Cook the orzo in salted water for ten minutes and add the peas to it. When the water comes to a boil remove and place the orzo and peas into a colander to drain the water. Combine the orzo and peas with olive oil and than add the olive mixture and the pecans. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve hot or at room temperature.
Toronto kosher catering should be able to support Jewish community services which require help to feed Jewish people in need. Kosher is a lifestyle choice and it should be made available to everyone regardless of economics. Kosher should not have any barriers.
