Ingredients:

  • 2 cups leeks, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 cups mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup dry orzo (rice shaped pasta)
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions:

1. Sauté leeks in oil in a medium skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the leeks are soft (about 5 minutes).

2. Add mushrooms and cook until soft (about 5 minutes).

3. Stir in the orzo and toast lightly, stirring frequently, for about 3 minutes.

4. Add broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the orzo is almost tender, about 8 minutes.
