Rice Pilaf

Shane's aunt made this delicious pilaf for a family gathering once and I just had to get the recipe. We used to have it with chicken, but it's so good that now I just make it as a meal on its own. This is my (simple) adapted version of Aunt Step's recipe.

1 c brown Minute Rice
1/3 c butter
4 garlic cloves, minced
onion powder
1 c Imagine chicken broth
salt & pepper
10 oz frozen peas
mandarin oranges

Melt butter in a wok. 

Saute the rice until it turns orange (about five minutes). 

Add the garlic and onion powder.

Add the chicken broth, salt, and pepper. 

Stir and bring to a boil. 

Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the water is almost gone.

Stir in the peas, cover, and cook a few more minutes until the peas are done.

Fold in the oranges before serving.
