Pilaf - Mom's (Carola's) version


Carola Shehan

1 cup Vermicelli (break into small pieces)

1 cup uncooked long grain rice

1/4 cup butter

3 cups chicken broth (or 3 cups water and 3 bouillon cubes)

½ - 1 teaspoon salt

Melt butter in pan. Add Vermicelli (broken into small pieces) and brown. Add rice and broth. Stir until thoroughly mixed. Cover with a tight lid and simmer without stirring, until all moisture is absorbed (approximately 15 minutes). Do not lift cover or stir. Remove pan from heat. Stir and it’s ready to serve.

 Serves 4-6

 Feel free to kick it up a notch………add garlic (fresh or powdered), pepper, or diced bell pepper.
