I started off by following the recipe pretty much exactly. The only change was that I cut down on the butter, like others had suggested. When the pilaf was ready to have the veggies added (I added broiled green pepper, zucchini, and fresh mushrooms) and roasted cashews, the taste was extremely bland. I then began to up the garlic, salt, and pepper just to get 'some' amount of flavor. Took a long time to make it palatable, and for what should really be a side dish, it was a bit too much work. When it was served, I was told that it wasn't horrible, but never to make it again.
