A basic rice pilaf is a handy, flavorful recipe to have in your repertoire, and it’s easy to make. Just toast up some rice with onion, garlic, and butter; cook it in chicken broth and water; and then let it steam for a few minutes until fluffy and tender. Stir in fresh parsley and serve this classic dish with Shrimp Scampi or next to Crispy Baked Chicken Breasts.

Instructions

  1. 1Place the rice in a fine-mesh strainer and rinse under cold water until the water runs clear; set aside.
  2. 2Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, season with salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. 3Add the rinsed rice and cook, stirring occasionally, until the kernels crackle, about 2 minutes. Add the stock or broth, water, and measured salt and stir to combine. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil.
  4. 4Reduce the heat to low, cover with a tightfitting lid, and simmer undisturbed until the rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit covered to steam, about 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and stir in the parsley. Taste and season with additional salt as needed.
