4 cups chicken stock

1 1/2 cups dry orzo 

One 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed 

1 1/2 cups (about 25) grape tomatoes, halved

1/2 cup pitted and halved kalamata olives 

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar 

3 tablespoons olive oil 

1 small red onion, finely chopped 

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Handful of fresh mint, torn 


  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, add the stock, cover and bring to a boil. Then add the orzo and cook, stirring frequently, until al dente, 7 to 8 minutes. Drain the orzo in a colander and allow to cool completely.
