Broccoli Rice Pilaf


Have you seen the rice blend by Minute Rice, called Multi-Grain Medley? It's a 100% whole grain mixture of brown rice, red rice, wild rice, and quinoa. My family and I really like it, and it cooks in 10 minutes. Score. And this is not a sponsored post. I just really like it.

We enjoyed this pilaf- it goes together quickly and makes a delicious side dish or light lunch.



Broccoli Rice Pilaf  Print Recipe

1 and 1/2 tablespoons olive oil or butter
1 small onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 cup Minute Rice Multi-Grain Medley or instant brown rice, dry (unprepared)
1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
2 cups broccoli florets, steamed

salt, to taste


1. Heat oil or butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until onion begins to soften.
2. Stir in dry multi-grain medley or rice and cook, stirring frequently, until it begins to turn golden. Stir in broth, bring to a boil, and cover. Simmer, covered, for about 10 minutes. 

3. Stir in steamed broccoli florets, adjust for seasoning, and serve.

I served Broccoli Rice Pilaf with my Sweet and Spicy Orange Glazed Salmon



Broccoli Rice Pilaf may have been taken to some of these fun parties!
