Another video recipe for this year’s Dog Days of Podcasting – a Quick Rice Pilaf
Quick Rice Pilaf
I used orzo in this recipe, but small pieces of angel hair pasta, or vermicelli are traditional in rice pilaf, too.
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
¼ cup (1-inch pieces) angel hair pasta, vermicelli or orzo
½ yellow onion, finely diced or chopped
1 cup long grain white rice
1 ½ cups chicken stock, vegetable stock (or water)
Melt butter in 2-quart saucepan with a tight-fitting lid over medium heat.
Add pasta, and stir to coat with butter
Cook (uncovered), stirring until golden , about 2 minutes
Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, until translucent, about 4 minutes
Add rice, stirring to coat evenly with butter
Add 1 tsp salt, pinch pepper (or to taste)
Pour in stock or water and bring to boil
Cover, and reduce heat to medium low.
Simmer until rice has absorbed all the liquid, about 15 minutes
Remove from heat, let sit 5 minutes, fluff with fork and serve
