Fresh Recipe: Butter Shrimp & Orzo

Who doesn’t love anything with Butter?  This Butter Shrimp and Orzo hit the spot any day!  Today on Fresh Tip Tuesday I shared this super easy recipe that you can do in the Smart Multi Cooker from Tupperware in less than 15 minutes!  ((I know right! I barely had time to pour my wine!)) I really love my Multicooker and when you get yours, you will as well.

Orzo is amazing and although it looks like a grain, yes, it is pasta.  Great for you too as it is one of those great carbohydrates that is low in fat and has fiber, plus protein. Tupperware has even more recipes available  for you at www.blog.tupperware.com or message me and I will send you my Fresh Picks custom for you!

10oz frozen broccoli or 2-3 heads of fresh broccoli (I prefer fresh, it makes the soup that much better)

2 cups veggie broth (or whichever broth you like)
1 cup milk
2 tbsp flour
1 lb velveeta cheese

1. Chop onion and garlic the the PowerChef or QuickChef Pro. Add to the base of the pressure cooker.
2. Chop broccoli if using fresh and add to the base of the pressure cooker.
3. Using your silicone spatula, mix together along with flour and salt and pepper.
4.Add remaining ingredients in base of Microwave Pressure Cooker
5. Seal and microwave on high power 15 minutes.
6. Remove from microwave and allow pressure to release naturally until pressure indicator fully lowers,
about 10–15 minutes.

Garnish with some fresh broccoli for color, and sour cream for an added creamy flavor.  ENJOY!

 

**I like making double batches, storing them in the vent n serve so I have planovers for later.**
