Over the years I've kept the rice coming for my husband but secretly one of my favorite ways to eat rice is in RICE PILAF.
What is Rice Pilaf you might ask? Simply, rice cooked in a seasoned broth. Now granted, you can get all sorts of fancy with the stuff and, depending on which part of the world you're in, rice pilaf can contain meat, veggies, and all sorts of spices.
This next recipe is a SUPER EASY basic one. It's so easy that all you have to do is mix the ingredients together and bake it! Walla. Beginner rice pilaf for you. "Why haven't you posted this yet?" you may ask... Try taking pictures of rice. It's so boring looking and my skills are in cooking, not photography! So despite the picture, this rice is yummy. :) Enjoy!
Easy Rice Pilaf
Adapted by jalene from a recipe off allrecipes.com
- 2 cups long grain white rice
- 2 Tbsp butter, melted (or to be Dairy Free use Earth Balance)
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 large onion, finely chopped
- 3 cups gluten free chicken stock
- 1 & 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
- Preheat your oven to 350 degress F.
- Combine all of the ingredients together. Toss into a 9x13 inch casserole pan. Tightly cover with foil. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven but do not remove the foil. Allow the rice to rest for 10 more minutes. Remove foil and flush with fork.
Store covered in the fridge. Extras can be frozen in a ziplock freezer bag and then thawed- I always add a titch more chicken stock to help moisten it back up.
