Brown Rice Pilaf and Rice Pilaf Salad

Total time: 30 minutes
     I use Uncle Ben's Brown Rice which looks like brown Basmati and cooks quickly, in about 15 minutes.  If you can't find a quick cooking brown rice and don't want to wait for the traditional to cook in 40 minutes (or so) you can substitute white Basmati which also cooks in about 15 minutes.  Look for the brown, though, better flavor and more nutrition.  This recipe plans on making the Brown Rice Pilaf Salad with the leftover rice pilaf.

Brown Rice Pilaf Ingredients:

 Instructions:

Note:  There should be about half leftover for Rice Pilaf Salad.   If you don't want the leftovers, reduce:

rice to 1/2 cup
chicken stock to 1 cup
all vegetables to scant 1/4 cup
soy sauce to 1 tsp

Rice Pilaf Salad

Total time: 15 minutes
   Part of what cooking in summer is all about is making things easy.  Cooking extra Rice Pilaf to use to make a salad is a perfect example.  All that's needed is more vegetables and a light vinaigrette to make a great summer salad!  Any leftover salad makes a lovely lunch.  This dressing is similar to Ranch, but with far fewer calories and all natural ingredients.
