    Superb side, with mushrooms, carrots and celery. Very rustic and tasty! Only enough for 2!

    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!

    A fabulous side dish and so easy to make. I am sorry but pecans are hard to find in France, and expensive too, so I subbed them with toasted walnuts - it was still delectable! I doubled the quantities, as I thought that the quantities listed seemed a wee bit on the small side for 4 people - plus I wanted some left-overs! I will be making this again - thanks Bev for posting this extremely tasty rice dish! FT:-)
