Directions

  1. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion until tender, about 5 minutes. Add rice and almonds, cooking and stirring until rice is lightly toasted, about 5 minutes more. Stir in water, bouillon, and parsley; cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until water is absorbed and rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and allow rice to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

This has the potential to be "delicious," but it came out incredibly bland. Next time I would perhaps use a finely diced mirepoix (onion, celery and carrot) and add some minced garlic as well, and/or increase the strength of the bouillon. The texture was great, but it tasted like nothing.

I decided to try this recipe to accompany the Balsamic chicken that I was serving. I wanted a pilaf that would be subtle in flavor to offset the bold flavors of the chicken, and this pilaf was perfect for that! The only change I made was to cook the pilaf in chicken broth since I didn't have any beef bouillon.

Just tried it, and was disappointed. It's quite bland, even for me. And I had even added minced garlic and a little extra boullion. Fortunately, I will be serving it with a brown gravy, although that was not my original intention.
