Looking for a lunch that you can keep in the fridge and it'll only get better? Then something like this orzo, mint and sundried tomato salad will hit the spot! Orzo is a type of pasta you can buy in most supermarkets - cheap, tasty and carries a sauce well.
Don't be tempted to use Quark: you're so much better than that.
And yes, you could use cherry tomatoes and make this syn-free, but proper sun-dried tomatoes are tastier and will bring your dish up a treat! Give it a go!
25g chopped mint
110g Philadelphia Lightest (one 1 x HEA)
100g chopped sundried tomatoes (6 syns)
salt and pepper
boil your orzo for about eight minutes until soft
drain the orzo, keeping aside 100ml of the cooking water
pop the orzo back in the pan, pop the water back in and put it on a very low heat
add the mint, sundried tomatoes, spinach and cream cheese together with a pinch of salt and pepper and allow the cheese to soften down and the spinach to wilt
stir and serve!
this makes enough for four decent sized portions and keeps well in the fridge
add peas, peppers, onion, anything you like - but we like to keep it simple
