"A delicious side dish for beef or chicken. A great change from plain rice or boxed rice mixes. I like to serve this with grilled chicken or with saucy cube steaks."

This has the potential to be "delicious," but it came out incredibly bland. Next time I would perhaps use a finely diced mirepoix (onion, celery and carrot) and add some minced garlic as well, and/or increase the strength of the bouillon. The texture was great, but it tasted like nothing.

I decided to try this recipe to accompany the Balsamic chicken that I was serving. I wanted a pilaf that would be subtle in flavor to offset the bold flavors of the chicken, and this pilaf was perfect for that! The only change I made was to cook the pilaf in chicken broth since I didn't have any beef bouillon.

Just tried it, and was disappointed. It's quite bland, even for me. And I had even added minced garlic and a little extra boullion. Fortunately, I will be serving it with a brown gravy, although that was not my original intention.
