As Chia says , this was more like a risotto than a pilaf, never the less the taste is outstanding, we loved it. I scaled the recipe to half and it still turned out good and had to use chicken stock, had no veggie stock, but I did use the 2 garlic cloves. We enjoyed this very much, thanks for sharing.

this was definitely more like a risotto with creamy rice, carmelized onions and the cheese thickened it nicely. i used fresh chives and parsley at the end for some additional color/flavor. nice side dish, thanks.
