"This version of mushroom rice pilaf uses fresh mushrooms, not canned. Add garlic if you like."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (8 ounce) package

chopped green pepper
1 1/3 cups
chicken bouillon granules
ground black pepper
This turned out to be an unexpected surprise, much better and certainly more memorable, than I thought it would be. However, I bumped up the flavor by using fresh garlic instead of garlic powder, using shitake mushrooms, chicken base rather than bouillon, and a good glug of white wine. I skipped the salt, which wasn’t necessary because of the bouillon or chicken base. This was excellent, actually. And elegant.
We loved the mushrooms, but the rice itself was a bit bland.
This was very good rice, but then I love mushrooms! I wish I would have seen the line at the end of the recipe that I could have added garlic to it because that would have been a nice touch. I followed the recipe except to use the red, yellow, and orange peppers rather than the green pepper called for. Thank you for a nice side dish!
We loved this! I omitted the green pepper (didn't have any), and added garlic in with the mushroom/onion mixture. Great combo of flavors...I will be making this again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
Excellent recipe! I added some chopped celery and red bell pepper as well as the mushrooms and green pepper.
Great dish! ...but let's make this easier!
We had fresh mushrooms to use up and I found this recipe.
I cooked the onion, peppers & mushrooms as directed, but added 1 Tablespoon of minced garlic (mine was from a jar) from other suggestions.
Then, I stirred in the same measurements of water and rice... BUT, I used YELLOW RICE ("Par Excellence with Saffron" from BJs').
I just knew it wouldn't need: salt, pepper, garlic powder, bullion, broth or ANYTHING ELSE!
I also knew that I was taking a chance & warned Wifey that she would be a 'test subject'
Happy to report that the experiment was successful!
The YELLOW RICE filled out ALL of the other flavors beautifully & took out all of the guesswork!
This was our main dish and we both loved it!
This will be a regular veggie-night dish, for us!!!
my boyfriend absolutely loved this! I didn't have green pepper and followed others' advice and added some garlic. This is a nice change from plain rice and as my boyfriend said "a definite keeper!"
I too enjoyed this recipe greatly!: although I have substituted celery for the bell pepper every time I've made this pilaf. The instruction to add garlic seemed unnecessary as garlic powder is already called for, I did however omit the powder in favour of one clove of fresh. This is a great accompaniment to many a meal!! Thanks for this versatile recipe!
