Lucie McKee's Rice Pilaf

Susan McGreevy


This recipe is a favorite of my teenage boys. I don't know if it's the buttery, garlicly, saltiness of it, but they love it. This is not a tradional pilaf, but feel free to add peas or any other ingredients your family enjoys.

How to Make Lucie McKee's Rice Pilaf


  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Add dried soup mix and brown, stirring constantly so it doesn't burn. Add the rice and toast rice kernals, 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add water, garlic salt and adobo and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer gently for 20 minutes or until water is absorbed and rice is soft. Serve.
  3. I double this recipe often but don't double the soup mix, just the other ingredients.
