This Orzo with Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Sauce is a promise to deliver the perfect vegan dinner in under 20 minutes. Replacing cream with coconut milk is a great way of cutting out dairy in a meal and in my opinion, its healthier and tastier. A Mediterranean inspired dish using orzo, that has a light and airy texture to replace the typical heavy feel that rice or pasta may give you. With the addition of rich sun-dried tomatoes, coconut milk and the distinct flavor of my favorite herb, fresh basil – this recipe is rich and flavorful!
