NEW VIDEO today!! I love showcasing old recipes that may have gotten lost in the shuffle and giving them new life by filming a video! I hope you enjoy this one. Leek and mushrooms are one of my favorite combinations to cook with and pairing it with creamy boursin cheese was perfection.

So creamy and full of flavor!

I’ve got some fun hacks in the video that I’ve thrown in there to help you out in the kitchen! The video is right above the recipe below!

So apparently, I’ve been living under a rock when it comes to cheese. A friend of mine told me about Boursin cheese. I’ve seen it in the grocery store but I have never bought it because I thought it was just a party cheese.

WELL. Let me tell you something. I want to Boursin all the things.

It’s so creamy and luxurious when it’s added into a dish. It literally transforms it.

Forget Boursin & crackers…melt it and add it into your pastas, chicken, everything! Gah, I have a feeling I’m going to have more Boursin dishes this year…and we’re only just beginning the year!

By the way – not sponsored by Boursin in any way, shape, or form. Discovered this cheese and just had to make something with it! I’m sure you’re glad I discovered it :)

Servings: 2
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cups thinly sliced leeks
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups chopped baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1 cup orzo
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 of the Boursin cheese round, I used the garlic and fine herbs flavor
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat up olive oil. Once oil is heated, add leeks and garlic to the skillet. Cook until leeks have softened and are a bit translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Next, add the mushrooms and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the orzo and toast, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes.
  3. Pour the chicken broth into the skillet and stir. Bring mixture to a boil then lower heat to medium low and let it gently simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until orzo is completely cooked through. You will want to stir the mixture occasionally to make sure it doesn't stick to the bottom of your skillet.
  4. Once orzo is done, remove from heat then stir in the Boursin cheese and season dish with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Serve warm!

    I have some Boursin in the fridge now. Might have to try this tonight. My favorite way to use it so far is in stuffed mushroom… Oh yeah!

  5. 01/06/2016 at 9:02 am

    Love the idea of using boursin to make the orzo creamy!

  7. 01/06/2016 at 9:35 am

    Whoa baby! I always forget about orzo and the fact that you added Boursin, epic!

  8. 01/06/2016 at 9:39 am

    What a delicious way to prepare orzo! I could eat a tub of boursin …so this is my kind of meal. :)

  9. 01/06/2016 at 10:02 am

    This sounds amazing! I definitely must try this!

    So comforting!

  12. 01/06/2016 at 2:16 pm

    Love how you used this cheese spread! I always have it with crackers, but now I want to try it other ways!

  13. 01/06/2016 at 3:23 pm

    You have taken my three favorite things (boursin, leeks, and mushrooms) and made them into something beautiful! I bet this would be ridiculously delicious alongside a steak! My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

  14. 01/06/2016 at 4:41 pm

    Total comfort food….perfect for Apres Ski!

    Can you substitute Boursin Cheese? It looks deliciously simple. I can’t wait to try it.

      This is one case where I’m going to say no because this dish was specifically made with that cheese and I don’t know if any other cheese will yield the flavor or texture I was trying to achieve with this dish.

      • 01/07/2016 at 5:04 pm

        I went on a search for Boursin Cheese and it turns out that the little old lady who owns a deli near my house sells it. SCORE. I will be making this on the weekend. Thanks Julie..

        Yay!!! :)

  18. Yum! I must be behind the times too because I have never heard of bousin cheese :)

  19. 01/07/2016 at 8:44 am

    I actually haven’t tried Boursin but now I definitely need to look for it. I love orzo and the cheese sounds incredible!

  20. Hahahaha, I’ve been living under a rock out of many reasons :D I love this post <3

  21. 01/07/2016 at 4:07 pm

    YUM! This looks amazing! What a yummy recipe! Perf for a chilly night! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Caution: the Bachelor WILL suck you in and before you know it, four seasons will have gone by! Best to have a cheesy delicious dish like this to watch along with ;)

  23. 01/09/2016 at 5:33 pm

    I’m so glad you’ve finally tried Boursin – it’s one of my absolute favourites! Adds so much flavour, and works so well in sauces :) This looks yummy!

    I made this tonight, the flavor was excellent! I threw in the entire boursin round because why not and also added a few splashes of franks red hot. It tastes great but if I made it again I’d add another source of protien, maybe add a couple of eggs at the same time as the mushrooms or some tofu.

    You say ” stir in the and TOAST”
    Toast what????? I don’t understand?

    • Julie
      12/09/2016 at 12:25 pm

      I said “stir in the orzo and toast” meaning toast the orzo a bit…so brown it slightly. Gives it flavor.

        thanks so much I was trying to figure out how to tast the orzo-thanks again-can’t wait to try it!
