One pot harissa shrimp and feta orzo comes together in right under 30 minutes and makes for a delightful weeknight dinner. Serve with a simple side salad and you have the building blocks for an easy meal.
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped shallots
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced thin
  • ¼ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 ½ cups dry orzo
  • 1 (14.5-oz.) can diced tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp. mild harissa paste (such as Mina brand)
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 lb. raw peeled and deveined shrimp
  • ⅓ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Fresh basil for garnish
  1. Heat oil in a large sauté pan with a fitted lid over medium heat. Add shallots, garlic, red pepper flakes, and salt; cook 3 minutes. Add orzo; cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden. Stir in tomatoes, harissa, and broth; bring mixture to a boil. Reduce to medium-low and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until orzo is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
  2. Remove lid, increase heat to medium, and stir in spinach and shrimp. Cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until shrimp is cooked through. Top with feta and fresh basil. Drizzle each serving with extra olive oil, if desired.
