Lemony Orzo with Asparagus & Shiitake Mushrooms

What you need: 

1/3 cup dried or fresh shiitake mushrooms, sliced

1 to 1-1/2 cups vegetable stock

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1/2 small yellow onion, sliced

salt, to taste

2 cloves garlic, minced

10 large stalks asparagus, ends trimmed, sliced in pieces

1/3 cup frozen green peas and carrot blend (optional)

ground pepper, to taste

1 cup orzo

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon lemon zest

1 tablespoon vegan parmesan

What you do: 

1. If using dehydrated mushrooms:  In a bowl, combine boiling water and dehydrated mushrooms; let soak until soft, about 10 minutes. Remove mushrooms and slice. If you are using fresh mushrooms, skip this step.

2. To a pot over high heat, add 1 cup vegetable stock; bring to a soft boil and then turn down the heat.

3. In a skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add onions and salt; saute until onion is translucent and soft. Add the garlic and cook for another minute or two. Then add the mushrooms, asparagus, green pea and carrot blend, and ground pepper; cook until the asparagus and mushrooms are soft.

4. In a small pot over medium-high heat, combine 1 tablespoon olive oil, orzo, lemon juice, lemon zest, and parmesan. Add broth, a ladleful at a time; stir until all the liquid has been absorbed. Continue to add ladlefuls of broth until all of the broth, adding up to an additional 1/2 cup if necessary to cook orzo.

5. Add the vegetable mixture from the skillet to the orzo. Mix. If desired, top with more parmesan when serving.
