Healthy Mixed Grain Pilaf RecipeTagged in Vegetarian
Preheat oven to 350F. Heat cooking spray or olive oil in heavy pan over medium-high heat.
Gently saute onions and garlic for approx 3-4 minutes or until soft but not transparent.
Add herbs, lemon zest and the rice. Saute until rice becomes opaque (you'll know). Be
careful to control the heat and stir often so rice does not burn.
Add other grains, vegan white wine, lemon juice and seasonings. Saute gently for another minute
or so. At this point you have a choice: if your pan is oven proof, go ahead and
add enough water to cover grains plus 1/2 inch, cover TIGHTLY (put a sheet
of foil in between the pan and the lid if you need to) and bake in
the oven for about 30-40 minutes (check at the 30 minute mark--this is
not an exact science, you may need to add more water at this point).
Personally, I like to transfer the sauted grains to one of those ceramic
bean-baking pots and bake the pilaf that way, for the same amount of
time as above, and observing the same percautions.
Voila! Enjoy with a big plate of steamed asparagus and a nice lemony-mustardy-yogurt
