I usually do not enjoy rice pilaf because it strikes me as boring in a way that ordinary white or brown rice does not. Perhaps because I expect more out of it for all the spices added. But today I had some fancy rice pilaf and I was amazed at the difference a few added vegetables could make!
To your basic pilaf, add....
small flowerets of broccoli
strips of red and green bell pepper
snow pea pods
oriental friend noodles, the kind sold in a can as a topping or for snacking
It is YUMMY! and you won't regret it!!!
