Veggie Rice Pilaf

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by MommyMakes

A nice rice and veggie side dish. A great replacement for the boxed rice sides. For super fast prep, use frozen prechopped veggies, they don't even have to be thawed.

Great idea and so much cheaper and healthier than buying the boxed mixes in the store! I have even made this on the grill in a disposable pan covered with foil over indirect heat. Thanks for posting!
