I had a mix of cooked brown rice, wild rice and wheat berry and didn 't have mushrooms so just cooked up the onion,carrot and celery plus walnuts instead of pecans!! Wonderful and definitely will do again.

Easy and great tasting rice pilaf! I used matchstick carrots and had walnuts on hand so subbed those for the pecans. DH loved this rice! Very nice change from ordinary buttered rice for a side dish. Thank you Bev for a great addition to our supper!
