Another Brown Rice Pilaf

018

I always use Uncle Ben’s brown rice. It has all the brown rice attributes, but cooks more quickly. If you buy bulk brown rice you’ll need to adjust the cooking time.

1 Tbsp butter
1 tsp olive oil
1 oz linguine, spaghetti or thin spaghetti, uncooked
3 green onions, sliced
1/2 cup converted brown rice, such as Uncle Ben’s
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
1 1/4 cup chicken broth (or beef or vegetable)

1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt together the butter and oil. Break the dry pasta into 1″ pieces and sautĂ© until golden. Add the green onions and cook until just tender. Stir in the rice and seasoned salt, then the broth and bring to a boil.
2. Cover the pan and reduce the heat to medium low. Cook, covered for 30 minutes. Turn off the heat and let stand another 5 minutes.
3. Fluff with a fork and serve.
