Recipe number 1, Garlic Rice Pilaf
1 cup of long grain brown rice
2 cups of water
2 tablespoons of oil *your choice but I use Olive Oil
1 heaping tablespoon of minced garlic
1 cup of minced veggies (peppers, celery, onion, carrot, anything that you want, I used the frozen spaghetti veggies.)
1 tablespoon of white wine.
1 tablespoon of parsley
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Make the rice by following the instructions on the box, I use a tablespoon of oil instead of butter.
In a saute pan saute the garlic first, use the remaining oil UNLESS using pre-cut packed in oil minced garlic.
When slightly browned add the parsley and saute.
Add the Saute the veggies with the garlic until soft, add your salt and pepper to taste.
Right before adding it to the rice add the tablespoon of white wine. Scraping all the brown bits off the pan and getting all the flavor from the pan.
Once the rice is cooked and almost all the water is gone add the veggies to the pot and stir.
Let it sit for another couple of minutes to get rid of the last remaining bit of water.
For pizazz when serving place some fresh parsley on top.
