Quick Brown Rice And Mushroom Pilaf

We all know that brown rice is healthier for you, but unless you add a few ingredients to it, it’s not very tasty. In fact, brown rice on its own has as much flavour as cardboard. This recipe adds so much good taste to brown rice that you’ll never want to go back to the white kind.

Quick Brown Rice And Mushroom Pilaf

What you need:

2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 small onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup chopped celery
1-1/2 cups sliced mushrooms (about 4 oz.)
2-1/2 cups chicken broth
2 cups instant brown rice, uncooked (I used regular brown rice, not instant)
1/2 cup PLANTERS Walnut Pieces, toasted (I omitted the nuts)
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
(I added some corn and peas to the recipe)

Make It:

HEAT oil in medium saucepan on medium heat. Add onions and celery; cook 3 min. or until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.

ADD mushrooms; cook 3 min. or until mushrooms are tender, stirring occasionally. Add broth; stir. Bring to boil.

STIR in rice; cover. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 min. Remove from heat; let stand 5 min. Add walnuts and parsley; mix lightly.
