I make this to accompany the Lebanese Chicken Stew. I forget to wash the rice often, and it still turns out alright!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in large saucepan. Add rice and stir to coat.
  2. Add spices and stock and half the water and bring to the boil.
  3. Cover and simmer until rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Add more water if it seems too dry. I seem to need different amounts of water each time!
  4. Serve with Lebanese Chicken Stew as the liquid from the stew is great poured over the pilaf.

Wonderful alternative to a plain boring white rice. My husband loved the flavor. I used the white rice. Next time I will add some ground black pepper. Thank you.

Terrific rice! I used brown rice and cooked it a little longer than stated, as I find brown rice tends to take longer to cook. Full of flavour, we really enjoyed this. Thanks for posting!
