Simple and so tasty. Style your rice to go with your meal by adding an ingredient(s) to suit your taste, such as a little onion, mushrooms, almonds, diced carrots, red pepper, peas, salsa, veggie or beef broth.

Great and easy rice pilaf! Turns out great every time!

I added mushrooms, onions and garlic to mine, and it was awesome! I will use this basic recipe often and then just add in other stuff that will go great with my main course. I can see changing up the poultry and trying steak, pork, ground beef or turkey etc. too. Lemon might be another thing to add to give it more flavor. The outcome is really up to you! This is headed right to my special file for safe keeping!
