Parsley, green onions and tomatoes add festive color to this mild rice dish from Carole Fraser of Toronto, Ontario. “I serve this pilaf quite often as a change from potatoes. It complements any type of meat or chicken.”

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1-1/4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped tomato
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Directions

  1. In a 3-cup microwave-safe dish, melt butter. Stir in the rice and onion. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 2-3 minutes or until rice is lightly browned and onion is tender, stirring once. Add broth.
  2. Cover and cook on high for 13-15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Stir in the green onion, tomato and parsley.
