    I added a LARGE clove of grated garlic,and a few Tbsps of chopped parsely. I've also done this with instant brown rice,and have,at times,sauted broken up vermicelli pasta with the onion in both varieties. Just make sure to let the pasta,(once browned),to boil for 3-5 minutes before adding your rice,and then let it sit,covered,for longer than the directions on the rice so that the pasta has sufficient time to soften. Bon Appetit!!

    I needed some quick pilaf- and I mean quick- I realized I had nothing to serve with my fish and dinner was 20 minutes away. This wasn't gourmet but it sure did in a pinch. I only added a few julienned sundried tomatoes.

    This is a very quick and flavorful side dish. Unfortunately, after I had sauteed my sweet vidalia onions in the butter and brought the broth to a boil, I discovered I didn't have any instant rice on hand. :( So...I broke up 2 packets of Top Ramen Noodles into little bits and added them to the rolling broth and onion mixture. (I discarded the seasoning packets that came with the noodles...those are too high in sodium anyway. LOL) When the noodles were tender, I drained a bit of excess liquid and tossed in the toasted almonds. WaLa! It was still a great side for our salmon. Hubby didn't even know that we were suppose to have rice for dinner. HaHa! Thanks for posting.
