I love rice pilaf and I was excited to find this recipe for brown rice pilaf since brown rice is so much better for you. It is from Healthy Cooking.
- 1 medim onion, chopped
- 1 medium green pepper, chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 1⁄4 cups long grain brown rice, uncooked
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 1⁄2 cups water
- 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- In large saucepan, saute onion and green pepper in oil until tender.
- Add rice and garlic; cook and stir for 3-4 minutes or until rice is lightly browned.
- Add the water, broth, thyme and pepper.
- Bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 35-40 minutes or until rice is tender.
- Fluff with fork.
We really enjoyed this healthier version of rice pilaf. Great flavor! The extra cooking time (for the brown rice) is worth it - the rice was fluffy and scrumptious! I followed the recipe EXACTLY and I wouldn't change a thing! Made for Photo Tag.
Really easy and really tasty. I used all chicken stock instead of water for extra flavor. Also great with mushrooms sautÃ©ed with the onion and pepper.
