This was a great recipe. I altered the way it was cooked because I didn't have any minute rice on hand. I used regular brown rice and a rice cooker. I added two lumps of chicken boullion to the water I normally would use to cook the rice. When it was nearly cooked through, I added the chopped onion to the rice cooker, and then a few minutes later I added the mushrooms (I skipped the celery because I didn't have any). The flavor of the rice is great with the mushrooms. I added the parsley and walnuts afterwards. Delicious. I'd make this again, it's healthy, and really improves the taste of boring plain brown rice.
I should've gone with other reviewers on this and used regular rice instead of instant. My family thought the rice was great, but I didn't like the rice quality at all.
I did substitute chopped almonds for the walnuts since I had them on hand and walnuts make a family member sick.
Good flavor - just word to the wise: buy regular rice!!
Great taste, but next time I'll use regular brown rice instead of quick rice for the rice its self was a bit lacking.
I made this recipe recently and loved it. I did not make any changes to it. I would reccomend low sodium broth just to cut out the sodium. Overall it was simple and quick to make and very tasty. I used baby bella mushrooms and the recipe had a great nutty flavor.
I made some substitutions to this recipe, but it still came out great! It was my first time making a pilaf. I used vegetable broth to make it vegetarian and used pecans instead of walnuts because that's what I had in the house. The biggest change I made was using regular brown rice. I started it in the rice maker, but when there was 10 minutes left on it, I stopped it to finish it as the recipe states. It turned out just fine! I'll be making this again.
Great recipe made it tonight. Did not have minute rice so used long grain brown added more broth to 2 cups of rice and also added carrots. took longer about 20 minutes but very good. thanks for sharing the recipe
My family loved this brown rice recipe. I added some sodium free chicken instant bouillon to cut down on the sodium content. It was great.
we enjoyed this dish served with salmon. I didn't have any fresh mushrooms, so I subbed in canned whole baby mushrooms instead, which worked just fine.
