The ultimate summer lunch, starter, or light bite. We’ve taken a classic summer orzo salad and given it a twist by adding some juicy shredded Daring Plant Chicken and mixed up the veg. Any leftovers make for a delicious office lunch the next day.
Cook the orzo pasta as directed on the packet. Once cooked, drain, and set aside.
Meanwhile, heat a frying pan on medium-high heat. Drizzle with a little cooking oil and sear the Daring Original Plant Chicken Pieces for 2-4 minutes per side. Once cooked, place the pieces on a chopping board and finely shred with two forks.
Finely chop the red onion, parsley, mint and grate the zucchini.
Prepare the dressing by mixing the juice of half a lemon, creme fraiche, minced fresh garlic, salt and pepper.
Place the orzo pasta, finely chopped veg and shredded daring into a large mixing bowl and pour over the dressing.
Wash and dry the romaine lettuce leaves and individually fill each one with roughly 1 heaped tbsp of the Daring orzo.
Wrap up and enjoy!
If there is any leftover mix it makes a great Tupperware lunch the next day. Store in the refrigerator overnight.
