Large Saucepan
Large Frying Pan


Get Prepped

a) Boil a full kettle. 

b) Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Boil the Orzo

a) Pour the boiled water into a large saucepan with 1/2 tsp salt on high heat.

b) Add the orzo to the water and bring back to the boil. Cook until tender, 10 mins.

c) Once cooked, drain in a sieve and pop back in the pan. Drizzle with oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.

Chorizo Time

a) Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan on medium-high heat (no oil).

b) Once hot, add the chorizo and fry until it starts to brown, 3-4 mins.

c) Lower the heat, then stir in the garlic, tomato puree and Cajun spice mix. Cook until fragrant, 1 min.

Sauce Things Up

a) Add the chicken stock paste, honey and water for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts) to the chorizo. Stir to combine and bring to the boil.

b) Simmer until thickened, 3-4 mins.

All Together Now

a) Once the sauce has thickened, add the peas and simmer until piping hot, 1 min.

b) Stir through the cooked orzo and creme fraiche. Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat.

c) Stir through the cheese until melted. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.

Serve Up

a) Share the creamy Cajun chorizo orzo between your serving bowls. 

b) Sprinkle over the crispy onions to finish.
