Simple, simple, simple and delicious, delicious, delicious. One of those inconspicuous side dishes that doesn't get the attention it deserves. A perfect accompaniment to any main dish.

This recipe is HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!
1. You are suppose to boil water before adding rice and veggies.
2. It's not rice pilaf but its just rice with veggies.
3. The water to rice ratio is way high!!!! you should have the same amount of each.
All in all, this recipe is wrong and should not be used.
