1

Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Zest and have the lemon. Trim the green beans and chop into thirds.

2

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large saucepan on medium high heat. Once hot, add the onion and season with salt and pepper. Cook the onion until softened, 5-6 mins, stir every minute or so. Once soft, stir in half the garlic and cook for 1 minute, then stir in the orzo. Pour in the water (see ingredients for amount) and the veg stock powder.

3

Stir the mixture together and bring to a simmer. Cook until the orzo is tender, 12-14 mins. Stir regularly to stop it sticking to the bottom of the pan.

4

Meanwhile heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium high heat. Once hot, add the beans and cook until slightly charred, 2-3 mins. Add the prawns and remaining garlic along with a splash of water. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: The prawns are cooked when opaque all the way through. Remove the pan from the heat.

5

Once the orzo is cooked, remove from the heat. TIP: If the orzo is not quite cooked but the stock has been absorbed, just add a splash more water and keep cooking until it's tender. Add the hard Italian cheese, harissa paste, prawns, beans and a pinch of lemon zest. Stir together gently until well combined.

6

Add a squeeze of lemon to the orzo, taste and add more salt, pepper and lemon juice if you feel it needs it. Spoon into bowls and finish with a sprinkle of remaining lemon zest. Enjoy!
