  • Rice pilaf has to be hands down one of the best rices out there. It is super easy to make, so we usually end up making it several times a month. I had to go in for oral surgery earlier this week, so I was only able to eat soft foods. I ate ice cream for lunch and by dinner I was craving something salty. I had my husband make up a batch of this easy rice pilaf and it was perfect! I ate almost the whole bowl! This rice goes with just about anything too! Sometimes I’ll throw in carrots and peas as well. It’s the perfect side dish. :)
