 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  teaspoons     olive oil
      1/2  cup           rice
      1/2  cup           orzo
   13 3/4  ounces        low-salt chicken broth -- plus
                         water -- as needed
    1      tablespoon    chopped fresh parsley
    1      tablespoon    Butter Buds®
    1      tablespoon    fresh lemon juice
      1/4  teaspoon      salt -- optional
 Heat the oil in a large skillet. Stir in the rice and orzo. While stirring
 constantly, cook the rice and orzo over medium heat for a minute or two
 until golden.
 Add enough water to the chicken broth to make just slightly less than 2
 cups of liquid. Bring the liquid to a boil, then stir into the rice mixture
 Stir in the remaining ingredients, then lower the heat, cover, and simmer
 for 25 minutes or until the rice and pasta are tender and the liquid is
 absorbed. Remove from heat but  keep covered. Let stand for 5 minutes.
 Stir, and serve immediately.
