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.
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!
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!!!
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!
