Rice Pilaf with Meat

By Muna Escobar supermomma5


This Middle Eastern Pilaf is called Hashweh. It is great as a side dish as is or with some plain nonfat yoghurt on top of it. The toasted blanced almond give it a delicious flavor and crunh. Growing up I remember this stuffing being used oftentimes to stuff a chicken or cornish hen before baking.
