Brown and Wild Rice Vegetarian Pilaf Recipe
1/2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp margarine
3 large shallot bulbs, minced
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or fresh crushed garlic, sauteed with shallots)
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
2 tbsp. GF vegetarian chicken flavored broth mix like Chickn’ish
1 tbsp. Nutritional Yeast
1/4 tsp. curry powder
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp. dried marjoram
1/4 tsp. dried sage
1/2 tbsp. Fresh rosemary
1 tsp. fresh thyme
1/2 tsp. freshly grated pepper
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Bring water to a boil in a medium pan (with lid) and add your rice and margarine. Cover and lower heat and simmer for thirty minutes.
Meanwhile, heat a little olive oil and margarine in a saute pan and add your shallots and (if using) garlic. Let turn translucent and then take off stove and reserve. Combine DRY seasonings in a small bowl.
Finally, after thirty minutes have passed for your rice, take off lid and stir in sauteed shallots (and garlic, if using). Whisk in your combined dry seasonings and return lid. Let simmer for another twenty or thirty minutes and then take off the burner. Let sit, covered, for ten minutes or more, and then fluff and serve.
You could also try adding some tasty greens or toasted pecans for extra nutrition and flavor. Mmmm…
