I needed a simple, basic rice to accompany fish. This was ideal - exactly what I had in mind. I used shallots rather than onion and, because of Hubs' preference, green peas rather than toasted pine nuts. Fresh tasting and delicately lemon flavored, this was perfect served with our grilled swordfish and roasted asparagus.
As is, I rate this recipe a 3. After adding more lemon, its a 4 (of course I love lemon).
I made this to go along with Texas BBQ chicken(recipe on this site to) VERY NICE!!! The sauce was a bit sweet, so it played so nicely with this rice dish! I loved the fact it was so tangy!!! I didn't change anything except I had a 1/8 of a tsp more frest zest and about 1T more fresh lemon juice!!!
It's very refreshing! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!!
LOVED this recipe!!! Only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars was because I like a pilaf with more veggies. I added 1 cup of frozen baby peas at the last minute.
This was delicious! I've never made rice pilaf before, but the recipe was easy to follow and it turned out great. I omitted the pine nuts because I had none on hand, and added a little more lemon, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It made a great compliment to grilled salmon, and has now become a side-dish staple for me. Excellent dish!
Wether or not it's a pilaf, it was inhaled by my family. I used shallots instead of onion and organic chicken broth. I made no other changes. I served this with Roast Chicken with Thyme and Onions and it was a good fit. I had a small bite and thought it was excellent. I think it would be even better with brown rice.
I made about 1/2 the recipe & it turned out quite well. i left out the bay leaf, parsley & pine nuts, adn added a little dried basil. As the others said, i think it definitely needs more lemon, but hubby liked it the way it was. This is an excellent recipe that you can easily make your own with a little know-how.
This was so good, didn't change a thing. With the leftovers I made some chicken soup and it was divine!
