  • Step 1

    Place the orzo in the pot and add the olive oil to it. Using a wooden or plastic spoon stir the orzo to make sure it is evenly coated in the olive oil – this will prevent the orzo from sticking together and will add more flavour.

  • Step 2

    Add the onions, garlic, sliced mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and pour the stock over the rest of the ingredients.

  • Step 3

    Mix all the ingredients using a plastic or wooden spoon , close the lid and select the steam meals function. Set the timer for 5 mins and press start.
