Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

A brisk, crisp Assyrtiko from Santorini makes perfect sense for the Greek flavors in this dish.

Beer Pairings

The tartness of a Gose will cut the richness of the olives, feta and dill.

What To Do:

Chicken Souvlaki Bowl - Step 1

1. Cook pasta: In a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat, add water and 2 teaspoons salt. Bring to a boil. Stir in orzo, and boil, stirring occasionally, until al dente (about 6 minutes). Drain orzo with a fine mesh strainer.

2. Mix dressing: While pasta is cooking; in a small mixing bowl, whisk together 3 tablespoons oil, 1½ tablespoons vinegar, garlic, ½ teaspoon oregano (save the rest for another use).

6. Finish bowl: Stir in ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper to remaining dressing. Toss orzo and spinach separately with remaining dressing.

To Serve: Arrange all ingredients in 2 serving bowls.

Pro Tip:

This dish is perfect to make and take. Just don’t dress the spinach and toss it in at the very end.

Sure, our TK food containers are recyclable, but we’d rather you upcycle them first. We’re partial to using them to sprout our garden seeds, but we’d love to see how creative you are! Tag us in your photos. #tklife
