Did you know that authentic Turkish Rice Pilaf is a bit sticky? Well, it is. So, for a nice change of pace, why not give this one a try...I bet your guests stick around for more!

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 cup (½ stick) butter or margarine
  • 1 medium-sized green bell pepper, diced (about 1 cup0
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms (about 4 ounces)
  • 1 large tomato, cubed (about 1-1/4 cup)
  • 1 cup uncooked long-grain or brown rice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 can (10½ ounces) chicken broth (1¼ cups)
  • 3/4 cup water

What to Do

  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the green pepper and mushrooms and sauté for 5 minutes.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients, stirring until blended.

  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Simmer, covered, for 30 minutes or until all the water is evaporated.


No fresh mushrooms? Use a 4- to 6-ounce can of sliced mushrooms...just drain them first. No green pepper? Try diced zucchini.
