Turkish Pilaf

(1 Votes)
40 Min

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.

Herb Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce

Instead of cooking ham or prime rib for Easter, why not try something new this year? Our Herb-Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce may look and sound fancy, but it's really easy to do. It's basically a rack of lamb that's coated with herbs and spices before it's roasted to perfection. Just before serving, it's finished off with a mint-wine reduction. The end result is an Easter-worthy main dish that'll impress everyone at the table.
