     Herbed Brown Rice Pilaf

                                 

This is comfort food at its finest. For a little crunch, add some toasted almonds or pine nuts.

Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: 1/2 cup)
Total: 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2/3 cup chopped onion 
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery 
  • 1/4 cup chopped carrot 
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 3/4 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. 1. Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.
  2. 2. While rice cooks, heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add onion, celery, and carrot; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat; stir in parsley and remaining ingredients. Add vegetable mixture to cooked rice; fluff with a fork. Serve immediately.
  3. Tip: Chop all your vegetables and herbs in the morning so when you come home from work, the recipe is a cinch to complete.
