Brown Rice Pilaf

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Halcyon Eve

I love this pilaf! I never liked brown rice until I tried it this way. It goes with just about anything, and the leftovers (when there are any) reheat well, too.

Yummy and super easy to make. Way better than plain steamed brown rice. I added peas and carrots. Wish I had almonds on hand. Pine nuts would be great as well!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring, until onion is golden, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add rice and sauté for 1 minute.
  3. Add broth, and season with salt and pepper to taste; bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low.
  4. Simmer until rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 45-50 minutes. Check rice occasionally and add water if necessary.
  5. Uncover and let rice stand for 5 minutes before serving.
