  1. This looks delicious :) Sorry to be a pain but how much lemon juice do you add, couldn't see it in the ingredients. Thinking of doing this for tasting session at our group this week .... They loved your Balsamic & Orange Orzo last time :) xx

    1. Thanks for pointing that out, it is 1 tbsp of lemon juice. I will put that right. So glad you are enjoying the recipes xx
