This week I am trying out some new recipes and thought I would put them on the ole blog! Every mom at one time or another has said, "gosh, I cook the same thing over and over." But easy, healthy, yummy recipes are hard to find. I am trying 4 new recipes this week, hope you can find something that looks good!!
Artichoke Heart and Orzo Salad w) Shrimp
2.5 qt water
1/3 cup lemon juice
14-16 baby artichokes
2T olive oil
1/4cup roaster, peeled, diced red pepper
2T Dijon mustard
2T white wine vinegar
1/2t dried tarragon
Ok, so the roasting and peeling of the red peppers and cutting up baby artichokes could get difficult and time consuming. SO, I bought artichoke hearts already cut and marinated...comes in a glass jar. And I cut the red pepper in several sections (didnt peel) and threw in the oven at 400 for 5-8 min, and then diced.
Drain artichokes and combined with 15-20 shrimp and set aside.
Drain orzo. Put olive oil in orzo and toss. Then add artichokes and shrimp.
Combine diced red pepper, mustard, vinegar, and tarragon in a small bowl.
Add this mixture to orzo and toss.
And because I love tomatos I added one at the end.
Eat hot or cold.
