Brown Rice Pilaf

I am not sure how much time, I will have, to cook new dishes before Passover (Pesach) so I am going to check out Chaya's Comfy Cook for some of my older recipes.  The photos are terrible but some of those recipes are the very  best.  I chose a rice pilaf for today.


This is the kind of dish, you can make over and over with slight changes and it adapts to all kinds of meals.

Rice Pilaf

Ingredients:

1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup chopped celery
1-1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
3-1/2 cups vegetable broth
1 1/2 cups brown rice, uncooked
1/2 cup walnut pieces, toasted
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Method:

In a medium to large saucepan, add rice and water. When water boils, lower the flame and cook on low for 45 minutes.


Heat oil in medium saucepan on medium heat. Add onions and celery; cook 3 minutes or until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.

Add mushrooms; cook 3 minutes or until mushrooms are tender, stirring occasionally.

Stir into cooked rice; cover. Remove from heat; let stand 5 min. Add walnuts and parsley; mix lightly.

  2. Yum! We've been eating a lot more brown rice lately.

    It's funny you should mention the bad photos on old blog posts. I was just mentioning how much my food photography has improved to my husband. I plan on posting a shamrock cupcake tutorial from last year, and was comparing the pics to more recent tart pictures. It's incredible what a difference composition and lighting make.
