Quick & Easy Veggie Rice Pilaf

Another quick and easy one tonight folks! Can you tell how lazy I've been lately? But hey, a delicious meal doesn't need to be complicated. This is actually the 2nd night this week I've made a rice pilaf dish. The first one though had a longer cooking time. You can also use this as a kind of "clean out the fridge" type meal. I had some broccolini that was starting to wilt so in the pot they went! Definitely feel free to sub any veggies you have at the moment.

Vegetable Rice Pilaf

  • ~1/4 cup vegetable stock, broth or bouillon cube (just enough to cover the pan)
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • 1/2 bunch broccolini, finely chopped
  • generous dash of tumeric
  • 1/2 cup orzo
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 3 cups water (or more veg. broth)
Gently simmer the carrot, garlic and broccolini in the veg. stock for about 2 minutes. Add the tumeric and stir. Add the orzo, rice and water, stir and briefly bring to a gentle boil. Simmer, covered on low for 25-30 minutes, until the rice is fully cooked. Taste for seasonings and fluff it up!
