Orzo with Garlic Ginger Vegetables

Serves: 6
WW Points: 3

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons ginger root -- minced and peeled
3 cloves garlic -- crushed
2 cups baby carrots -- sliced
2 cups baby zucchini -- sliced
1 red bell pepper -- seeded and chopped
1 yellow bell pepper -- seeded and chopped
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules -- dissolved in 3/4 cup boiling water
2 1/2 cups cooked orzo
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper -- or to taste

In a wok or large skillet over low heat, heat the oil. Saute the ginger root and garlic until deep brown, 4-5 minutes; keep the heat low so they don't burn.

Increase the heat to high; add the carrots. Stir-fry, adding the zucchini, bell peppers, and dissolved bouillon, until the vegetables are tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.

Add the orzo and pepper; toss to combine. Serve immediately.
