Easy Lemon Pilaf Recipe

We love having rice along with our dinner here at our home. I probably make some type of rice dish once a week. This Lemon Pilaf recipe is great served along with chicken, turkey or fish. (Hubby loves it served along side Lemon Pepper Chicken).

Lemon Pilaf Recipe Recipe

1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup onions, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
3 cups cooked white rice
1 tablespoon lemon peel, grated
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Saute celery and onions in butter until tender. Add rice, lemon peel and seasonings, toss lightly. Continue cooking over low heat for about 2 minutes or until heated, stirring occasionally.

Shelly, would this work with brown rice?

Shelly said...

yes...you can substitute! Although, my personal preference is white rice.

I like white rice too and I have some brown rice, but I find it grittyish. Maybe I didn't cook it long enough.
