This is a good recipe for rice pilaf. I added more butter and used chix bouillon with water and it turned out sooo flavorful. Sometimes I will grate a tad bit of garlic in just before adding the liquid. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe thinking it would be flavorless but I was wrong. I really enjoyed it and feel its very flavorful, for a simple rice pilaf. The kids loved it too. Will make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this recipe and it's awesome. I've also used Orzo, but I had to adjust the cooking time, but it was awesome too. I like recipes that don't have 1,000 ingredients. Thank you Rachel. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a good basic recipe and very easy to make. I sometimes cook some onion in the butter before adding the rice and pasta. I always add cumin along with the salt and pepper, and when the dish is done, I add a handful of frozen peas and put the lid back on for a minute or two so they are cooked. Then I fluff the pilaf with the peas in it. My whole family love this dish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I haven't actually made it yet, but this is the way my mom made it. i'm going to try it. I know it will be good. Thanks for posting it, Rachael. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love it!! I've made it several times because I love pasta and rice, in fact I crave them both! Nope, not pregnant...thank God! I've tried rice pilaf out before, but they use wild rice and just too many spices. This is perfect! Thank you for this simple recipe that taste great!! I'll be making this more often and will also be adding some other ingredients too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe and make it often for my "picky eaters"...children, adults who are not adventurous, etc. I saute onions or shallots in the butter first and add a little fresh parsley for color. Big hit and the base recipe can be as fancy or basic as you like by adding other ingrediants. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the first time I've made rice pilaf from scratch. It was very tasty and easy to make. I added corn and fresh herbs in mine for a slight variation. Will do again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe easy to make and delicious! I I used organic spaghetti, jasmine rice ,1 1/2 of broth made from "Better Than Boullion" Turkey base brand mix. Browned the pasta for about 2 minutes before adding the rice then browned about 3 more minutes. I did add a shake of garlic powder to it. added a sliced green onion. and lemon herb spice. This is the first time, I cant wait to make different styles of this, with Brown Rice, Go away Rice a Roni go away. This has a lot less salt in it. Thanks for the idea Rachel! item not reviewed by moderator and published
