Thyme-Scented Pilaf


  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1/3 cup orzo

  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped

  • 1 shallot, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 cup long grain rice

  • 2 cups chicken stock


Melt the butter in a medium size pot over medium heat. Add the orzo, thyme, shallot and garlic and cook until the orzo is golden brown and the shallots are softened, 3-4 minutes. Stir in the rice, then add the chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 18 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
