Adventures With Rice: Feta and Herb Orzo Pilaf

You didn't think I'd let the blog go thiiiiiiis long and not come back with another rice post, did you??? I hope not! If you haven't figured it out yet - I'm a big fan of rice. :)

The rice in this post is based off this recipe, but I modified it quite a bit. It's one of my favorite rice recipes and I really don't make it enough!

Here's how to make this super easy, but amazingly tasty rice pilaf!

The Goods:
Butter (Not Pictured)
Green Onions
Long Grain White Rice
Chicken Broth
Salt and Pepper
Fresh Herbs (Basil, Parsley, etc.)

Melt the butter

Add the sliced green onions

And the garlic!

Sauté a couple of minutes.

Add the orzo and sauté 2 minutes.

Add the rice and sauté 2 more minutes. 

Pour in the chicken broth.

And add the salt and pepper!

Pour it all into a covered casserole dish.
Bake at 350 for about 35 minutes.

Let the rice sit for about 10 minutes

Add the feta!!!

And the herbs.

And give it one last stir to combine everything.

Now enjoy!!!
