Happy March everyone !!! This has been one wildly non existent winter in the Midwest. We got into the 50s, 60s and 70s in February, so who knows what March will bring.
But what I’m bringing you today is a Wild Rice Pilaf recipe that is a no fail. Guys, this really is as simple as cooking gets. The rice pilaf you buy in the store is just jam packed with sodium. It’s probably worse than the canned soups are. Plus they just smell bad as they’re cooking too.
Ever since I learned to BAKE my rice a few years ago, like in our very popular Baked Brown Rice recipe, I’ve never looked back. Boiling rice on the stove has never turned out good for me. It’s either complete mush or it’s sticky and … well I totally get why people buy the boxed Rice a Roni.
But you don’t have to anymore. This rice pilaf is fluffy, it’s full of flavor and an awesomely EASY side dish!
I’ve only used vegetable broth with this recipe. It gives the rice a lot of flavor. If you are looking for a more mellow behind the scenes kind of rice then I would suggest chicken broth, and of course homemade makes all the difference ! Or a combination of both, even water would work.
