Microwave Rice Pilaff

Microwave Rice Pilaff created by Boomette

Foolproof and easy to prepare. Dish can be made ahead and reheated before serving. You can freeze the leftovers; it works! Feel free to add other herbs of your choice; when fresh herbs are around I am very generous and produce all kind of taste senstions.

    I discovered this recipe while I was on a hiatus from my stove which was on the blink for a month while the expert repairmen tried unsuccessfully to repair it... (It was a BRAND NEW stove!) It is absolutely the best rice recipe and the easiest recipe I have ever made! I tweak it with additional herbs and lots and lots of garlic, and I use Country Crock Olive Oil Sticks and Better than Bouillon Roasted Garlic flavored broth because I'm vegan. I will never go back to stove top rice making again!!!! I make it before I begin my main cooking and I think it's almost better after it steams for a while while everything else cooks! I'm almost thankful my stove failed! LOL Thank you for sharing this recipe! It is a keeper!

    I have made this twice now, once per the original recipe and then with a Mexican flare. Both were great and I'm glad that I can now cook rice in my microwave! Thanks.

    Followed recipe exactly. Rice took longer than expected and was kind of bland for a pilaf. I will definitely make this again, remembering to increase my cooking time and add a few spices. Thanks for the recipe!

    This was really good and really easy. Will have to try fresh herbs next time.

    VERY GOOD! This rice dish saved my dinner tonight! I fell behind in starting my side dish tonight and saw the microwave option and ran with it. So glad I did! I increased the garlic and used chicken stock in place of broth. I used all dried herbs and microwaved it 5 minutes more than stated and it was PERFECT! The only downside was that I overheated my microwave cooking it! ;) Great recipe! Definite repeat!
