Easy and Delicious Rice Pilaf

We eat a lot of rice. So I was really happy to find this easy rice pilaf recipe. It's delicious and so simple.

1 C rice, uncooked
2-4 Tbl olive oil
2 C chicken broth
1 Tbl dried thyme
1-1/2 tsp salt

In a medium sauce pan, heat oil. Add the rice and toast on medium high until the corners of the rice are translucent and it has a nice, toasted smell.

Add the broth, thyme, and salt. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cover the pan.

Cook covered for 15-18 minutes. Do not remove the lid to check how it's going. After 15 minutes, you can check, and then check every minute or two after.

Remove from the heat and fluff with a fork. Cover with a clean dishcloth and let stand for a few minutes before serving.

Serve with your favorite entree.

  2. I like this recipe I am intrigued by the toasting of the rice prior to adding the liquid will definitely try this with the guests I'm having over tomorrow for chicken fajitas. I'll let you know how it comes out. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

  3. I meant to ask, how many people does this serve? Typically recipes indicate how many portions they generate. πŸ‘Œ✌πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘

  4. Bob, it makes about 3 cups of rice, so it depends on how much people eat. :) If a serving size is 1/2-cup, it makes 6 servings.
