Simple Rice Pilaf

I love to use this simple rice pilaf recipe as a jumping off point for my meal planning. It is a great way to dress up regular rice for a week day meal. It would not be unusual for me to take Monday’s leftovers and incorporate them into Wednesday’s rice pilaf.

While this simple rice pilaf is delicious on it’s own, but can be combined with a never ending flavors. This rice would be delicious combined with dried cranberries, spinach or kale and walnuts with a dash of cinnamon for a delicious cold weather side dish or with citrus zest, slivered almonds and sauteed summer vegetables for a hot weather meal.

Let your imagination run a little wild and create your own amazing dishes.
