RECIPE: Baked Rice Pilaf

annova914January 20, 2009

My sister told me about this recipe for baked rice pilaf that she found at the almanac website. I tried it tonight and of course I had to mess around with it so I'm posting the original and my version. This is how I'll be making pilaf from now on. It is delicious!--Ann

Baked Rice Pilaf

1 cup uncooked, long grain rice

4 T butter or margarine

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 cups hot beef or chicken broth

½ tsp salt

¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Saute the garlic and rice in the butter or margarine until golden. Pour into a casserole, add the broth and salt. Cover tightly and bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Add the cheese and stir until cheese is well mixed and the rice is fluffy. Serves 4.
