Vegetable Rice Pilaf

The aroma of a vegetable rice pilaf wafting through the air. That is what you will have when you bust this flavorful, yet simple, dish out. Another one from my boyfriend’s recipe book. Also, his video below to follow step by step directions. He has made this IG cooking profile for his daughter.

Ingredients:

2 TBS olive oil

1/2 carrot, diced

1/2 celery, diced

1/2 cup onions, diced

1 1/2 cup rice

4-5 cups chicken broth

Salt and pepper to taste

1 TBS butter

1 TBS parsley, chopped (optional)

Directions:

Heat olive oil and add diced onion, cook for 4 minutes, add the rest of the chopped vegetables and cook another 4 minutes, or until softened. Add rice and sauté until rice is toasted. Add chicken broth and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer covered for 20 minutes or until the perfect consistency of your liking. Add 1 TBS butter and let stand for 5 minutes and add parsley before serving.

Buon appetito!
