Very quick and easy to make. Tasty! I don't think guests would believe it was so simple. It accompanied the tilapia I grilled on my brand new George Foreman grill, so I had quite a delicious healthy meal. Will try adding nuts to the pilaf next time. I think that would add a nice flavor; however, it was very good just exactly as the recipe was printed.
