3 tbsp
4 cups
sliced cremini mushrooms
shallot, diced
garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp
fresh thyme leaves
1 cup
dried orzo
1/4 cup
white wine
2 cups
vegetable broth
1/4 cup
crumbled goat cheese
1 cup
green peas
2 cups
chopped baby kale
Salt and pepper to taste


In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring, until the mushrooms begin to brown and release their moisture, about 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the shallot, garlic, and thyme leaves. Cook, stirring, until the shallots begin to soften, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the orzo and white wine. Continue to cook, stirring often, until the wine has mostly evaporated, about 30 seconds. Stir in the vegetable broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to cook, stirring often, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 10 minutes.

Stir in the goat cheese until it is fully melted. Add the peas and kale and continue to cook, stirring constanly, until the kale is wilted and the peas are heated through, about 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
