This fluffy rice side dish is flecked with green parsley, green onions, green peppers, and mushrooms.
There is great flexibility with this recipe. For example, add slivered almonds, or add baby peas at the end. It's just as easy to omit something (like mushrooms) if you have picky eaters.
The key to a nice fluffy pilaf has to do with important steps in the preparation: sauteeing the rice in the beginning, then covering the pot and cooking it over very low heat for 17 minutes without stirring or looking.
