Recipe: Courgette and ve-du-ya orzo with burrata


This is a delicious spicy orzo dish made with vegetarian nduja!

I picked up a jar of Belazu's vegan nduja (ve-du-ya) in Booths a couple of weeks ago, and thought it would be nice to use in an orzo dish.

This is quite spicy, but the burrata does balance the heat out well. I used 2 tbsp of the ve-du-ja, but you could just use 1 tbsp to make it less spicy.

I served this as a dinner for 2, but it would also be perfect to share at a dinner party with some other dishes or as a side.

(And of course you could sub the ve-du-ya for nduja).

Serves 2.

  1. Ingredients

    180g orzo

    2 courgettes, sliced approx 1cm thick

    2 tbsp Ve-du-ya

    Handful of basil, chopped



1. Add the orzo to salted boiling water, and cook for around 9 minutes.

2. In a frying pan, cook the courgette in olive oil for a couple of minutes on each side until it is starting to turn golden.

3. Add the ve-du-ja and orzo to the pan with the courgette, mix well.

4. Stir in the chopped basil.

5. Serve with the burrata on top, and add some black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.
