      This was excellent and super easy. Although it bugs me when people change the recipe and review it, my changes were very minor. I followed the directions exactly, except with 1c rice and 1/2 c orzo. Then, I didn't have fresh parsley, so I added dry in before simmering. This was even better for leftovers the next day.

      I made in my rice cooker. Sauteing the onions in butter then adding brown rice and home made chicken broth. This method is easy and saves room for stove top cooking. Thank you for this simple and basic pilaf. Thanks!
