How To: Courgette, Broad Bean and Feta Orzo with Pork Meatballs

Here's another one of our dishes from our box from Hello Fresh this week. We are pretty much sorted for this week as we didn't use the two meals from last week, but since we had a little mishap with a very long "nap" last night, we missed out on dinner. So before we headed out to the cinema tonight, to watch Bridget Jone's Baby, Jessica made dinner, while James cleaned up our room. What a team!

Serves: 2 | Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 20 mins


- 300g Broad Beans
- 1 Red Onion, chopped
- 1 Courgette, chopped
- 1 Garlic Clove, grated
- 1/2 bunch Mint, chopped
- 250g Pork and Oregano Sausage
- 180g Orzo
- 400ml Water
- 1/2 Vegetable Stock
- 1/2 Block Feta Cheese


1. Slice each broad bean pod along with seam with knife and push the brand beans out

2. Cut the red onion in half through the root, peel and shop roughly 1/2cm pieces. Cut the bottom and tops of the courgette and then half lengthways, cut each half into four long strips then shop into 1cm chunks. Peel and grate the garlic. Pull the mint leaves off their stalks and roughly chop

3. Slit each sausage in half and discard the skin. Roll the sausage meat into meatballs and leave to the side

4. Put your onion in a large frying pan with a drizzle of oil on medium heat. Cook for 4 mins then add your courgette, a good pinch of salt and a good drink of black pepper. Cook for another 6-7 mins before adding your garlic. Stir together and cook for 1 min, then pour in the orzo. Stir until your orzo is well coated in the garlicky oil, then pour in the water and vegetable stock pot

5. Bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve your stock pot, then turn the heat down to low and simmer away for 10 mins or until the liquid has absorbed and cooked

6. While your orzo is cooking, add your meatballs to a frying pan on medium heat with a drizzle of oil. Cook for 8-9 mins until they are brown and cooked through

7. When your orzotto is 4 mins from being ready, add your bored beans to the pan to cook for the remaining last 4 mins, then remove the pan from the heat. Crumble the data into the pan along with your mint and stir together.

8. Serve you orzo with your meatballs on top. Enjoy!
