How to Make Lemony Vegan Orzo Salad

Cook the orzo in salted water according to package directions. Then drain and rinse with cool water.

While the pasta is cooking, prepare the broccoli rice. Pulse florets in a food processor until "riced."

While the pasta is draining in a colander, use the empty pasta pot to briefly heat the broccoli rice. Season with salt. Set aside to cool.

Blend the dressing. Finally, assemble the salad by stirring together the orzo, broccoli, vegetables and dressing.
