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!

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 :)

Ingredients 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cups thinly sliced leeks
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups chopped baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1 cup orzo
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • ½ of the Boursin cheese round, I used the garlic and fine herbs flavor
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Stir in the orzo and toast, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Once orzo is done, remove from heat then stir in the Boursin cheese and season dish with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Serve warm!

I didn't have Boursin, but used some Philadelphia with garlic and herbs that was lurking in the fridge. This recipe was amazing and got 5 stars from my very picky son.

This is a great base recipe that you can make adjustments to depending on what you have on hand. I didn't have any boursin but I did have some leftover soft blue cheese that needed using up and put that in instead (reduced amount from boursin because blue cheese is obviously a much stronger flavour) and switched chicken stock to vegetable (again, what I had in the fridge, not that I am vegetarian) and it was delicious!

I think it would also work well with ricotta and with lemon juice squeezed over. More experiments to come!
