Michelle’s Rice Pilaf

May 22, 2012

I have always wanted to have a simple rice pilaf recipe on hand for using as a side dish when I don’t want to cook potatoes for the millionth time in a row.  So I invented this recipe a few weeks ago and it was super delish!  I will be making this rice over and over again.  Super simple and tasty.

Here’s what you need:

1 Tbs. canola or vegetable oil
1 Tbs. butter, unsalted, at room temperature
1/2 cup white rice
1/4 cup Orzo (pasta)
2-1/4 cups water
1 Tbs. chicken bouillon
2 Tbs. low sodium soy sauce
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. granulated garlic
2 green onions, sliced thinly

In a medium skillet heat the oil and butter over med-hi heat until the butter is almost melted.  Add the rice and orzo and cook until browned; be careful not to burn the rice and orzo.

 
 
Add water, soy sauce, and seasonings.  Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 20 minutes (No peeking)  
 
Fluff with a fork and add the sliced green onion.  Stir to incorporate.  Serve.
              Mmmm  

Serves 4

Enjoy!
