Rice Pilaf

Rice Pilaf


  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 1/4-1/3 cup 1-inch pieces broken thin spaghetti (a small handful), regular or whole grain

  • 1 cup white rice

  • 2 cups chicken stock


Heat a pot with a tight-fitting lid over medium heat with the lid off. Melt the butter, then add the broken pasta to the pot and toast until deep golden. Add the rice and stir, then add the stock and bring to a boil. Cover the pot and reduce the heat to low or simmer. Cook for 17-18 minutes, then fluff the rice with a fork.
