Springtime Pilaf
Recipe

Thursday, November 8, 2012
Every now and then I run out of inspiration. Menu inspiration that is. We have our favourites here at home which we do on a somewhat regular basis. We also venture down the new recipes road on a daily basis as well. And then there are times where laziness gets in the way. Can you really blame me? With all the other chores that pile up daily!? Uncomplicated, easy to make and still delicious dish ideas often come to the rescue! Thus the reason I love this rice recipe so dearly. This pilaf will dress up nicely any kind of main dish you serve it with. It is simple, easy and extremely tasty. Serves 8.

2 3/4 c. water
1/3 c. butter
2 tbsp instant chicken bouillon
1/4 tsp salt
Pinch of pepper
1/4 tsp minced fresh garlic
1 1/4 c. uncooked long grain rice
1/2 c. finely chopped carrots
1/2 c. slivered almonds, toasted
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley
2 tbsp sliced green onion


  • In a 2L saucepan, bring water, butter, chicken bouillon, salt, pepper and garlic to a full boil. 
  • Add rice and carrots, then return to a full boil again. 
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer until the rice is tender (25 to 30 minutes). 
  • Stir in the remaining ingredients.
