Jessica Seinfeld’s Rice Pilaf

Our oldest has finally started eating rice, so I thought I would try this recipe out to have with the teriyaki chicken I was making.

2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp olive oil
1 cup brown rice
1/2 cup cauliflower puree ( SO EASY…see recipe below)
1 1/4 cup chicken broth

In a saucepan, saute the garlic for about one minute. Add the uncooked rice and toss to coat.

Add the cauliflower puree and broth. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to a simmer and cook with the lid tightly in place, about 45 minutes or until the rice is tender. Do not stir!

Let the rice stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.

Did I change anything? I had to add more water as the rice cooked because all of the chicken broth was boiling away, but the rice wasn’t done yet. I was also wondering if I could make it with the brown rice that Minute Rice makes to speed the process up a little bit. I might try that next time.

What did the family think? Everyone in our house who likes rice thought this rice was very good.

Cauliflower Puree
Boil a bag of frozen cauliflower per the directions on the package, but cook it longer than it says because you want the cauliflower to be super soft. Put cooked cauliflower in a food processor or a blender. Blend until pureed…you may need to add a little water to it. Voila!
