One Pot Baked Orzo

Make this easy pasta dinner with a few key ingredients and one pot for easy clean up. We never tire of the combination of feta, tomatoes, olives, chickpeas and pasta. Batch cooked Kabuli Chickpeas really come in handy here!

Stock up and try this new recipe for a yummy meal the whole family will love. Skip the feta for a vegan option. 

One Pot Baked Orzo
2 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, chopped
1.5 cups vegetable broth
2 cups dry Orzo Pasta
1 can can (794g) whole tomatoes, undrained
2 cups cooked Flourist Kabuli Chickpeas (about 150g dry)
2 tsp dried oregano
¼ tsp (1 mL) red pepper flakes
1.5 tsp salt
Optional: crumbled feta cheese, Kalamata olives

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Heat the olive oil in a large oven proof Dutch Oven or cast iron pot on the stovetop. 

Add the chopped onion to the pot and cook until softened, about 3–4 minutes.
Add the broth, orzo, tomatoes (and their juice!), cooked chickpeas, oregano, red pepper flakes, and salt. Stir and bring to a simmer, uncovered. 

Remove the pot from the heat. Cover and bake in the pre-heated oven until the liquid has been absorbed and the orzo is soft, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, stir and serve directly from the pot with optional crumbled feta and olives. Fresh basil is a wonderful addition in the summer. 

This recipe serves 4-6 as a main meal with bread and salad.



Loved this dish. So easy and so flavorful! I usually make alterations but this time stuck to the recipe (sans onion). I happened to have all the ingredients on hand and have been wanting to try your orzo and it did not disappoint. Delish! Will def make again. Thank you!


Making this for the 2nd time, I added garlic and spinach after the bake. It is delicious and hearty, thanks so much for the recipe and the orzo pasta and chickpeas from Florist!
