Blackberry Ginger Stir-fry with Crispy Feta and Lemon Orzo

Perfect spring or fall dish that delivers on flavour and is packed with veggies! The crispy feta is a perfect way to top it all off! Enjoy!


  • 1lb Lemon Garlic Orzo (or another orzo from Olive Us such as Supreme Blend, Autumn Harvest, or Spring Medley)



Bring a pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Add the pasta and cook for about 10-12 minutes or until al dente.

While the pasta is boiling, prepare the stir-fry. In a large skillet over medium high heat, heat half of the Persian Lime Olive Oil and add the broccoli rabe. Cook for 4 minutes and then add the bell pepper, garlic and ginger, cook for 2 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining Persian Lime Olive Oil, sesame oil, and balsamic. Pour the mixture over the vegetables, reduce the temperature to medium-low and stir to coat. Cook for about 2 minutes or until the balsamic has coated the vegetables, but hasn’t burned. Remove from heat and sprinkle with sesame seeds, salt, zest, and chili flakes. Set aside.

In a large skillet, heat oil on medium high. Combine the cornstarch and spices/herbs in a small bowl. Dip the slices of feta into the cornstarch mixture to coat, adding the slices to the hot pan as you go. Cook for about 1 minute on each side or until golden brown and crispy.

Drain the orzo and add it to several serving dishes (serves 6). Top it with the balsamic coated vegetables and several slices of feta. Drizzle some extra Persian Lime Olive Oil and Blackberry Ginger Balsamic if desired, and serve! Enjoy!
