Instructions
  1. Peel and then chop the carrots to very small cubes
  2. Cut the capia pepper vertically into half. Take out and discard the seeds. Then chop the capia pepper to mall cubes, similar to the size you've cut the carrots.
  3. Use a non-stick pot. Add the butter and the olive oil to melt over medium heat.
  4. Firs saute the carrots for a few minutes, then add the capia peppers and also saute few minutes.
  5. Chop the garlic and add.
  6. Add the chicken boullion now, if you choose to use one and make sure it is well combined. As the chicken bullion is salty adding a little bit of salt and pepper will be enough. Adjust according to your taste. If you are not using chicken buillion increase the amount of salt you are using.
  7. Add the orzo and saute for a minute, until it slightly changes color. Do not wash the orzo before adding. Orzo is similar to pasta only small sized.

  9. Add hot water to cover.
  10. Cook over high heat until the water comes to boil again, then reduce the heat.
  11. Cook until the water is soaked up. Mixing only once in a while will be enough to make sure the orzo doesn’t stick on the bottom.
  12. If you are using canned peas - which are already cooked. Add after the orzo is ready, but still warm. Mix gently.
  13. Garnish with chopped dill and serve warm.
