Garlic Rice Pilaf

(photo source: Stephanie Cooks)

We were so hungry that I forgot to take a picture! This is a really light, quick side dish that would pair great with most proteins. The garlic and onion taste was very subtle, so maybe next time I'll actually measure out roughly 1/8 tsp. of each. I love that this uses a mix of rice and orzo, because rice can tend to get really boring, and orzo is awesome. I think this will be a great addition to our side dish repetoire.

Serves 2-3

1/4 cup white rice (not instant)
1/4 cup orzo
1-1.5 cups of chicken broth
Garlic powder to taste
Onion powder to taste
Cooking spray

Spray a small saucepan with cooking spray. Add the orzo and rice.

Allow the rice mixture to lightly brown. Pour in the chicken broth and seasonings. Turn the heat down low, cover the sauce pan. Allow it to cook until the liquid absorbs (about 20 minutes), stirring occasionally.
