The Dish
Get ready to be wowed by this dish that might rise to the top of your best-of dinner list. We absolutely love this recipe—all of the components are packed with flavor and nutritionally-dense ingredients. Sliced mushrooms and diced onions are sautéed tender and blended with a simple broth-yogurt combination, creating an easy creamy sauce for our seared salmon fillets. Orzo pasta is tossed with sautéed spinach and diced tomatoes, and lightly seasoned to enhance the natural flavors of this veggie-fueled side dish.

Hacking this Recipe: Frozen spinach can be used in place of the fresh spinach in the orzo recipe, just try to squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the thawed spinach (to keep the side dish from getting to watery).
