Baked Garlic Rice Pilaf
If you read many food blogs you are aware that recipes get trendy, you see them on every food blog for a few weeks, and then they slowly disappear. Some people hate this and refuse to blog "trendy" recipes- meh. To each his own. I cook what I like, I like what I cook, and then I blog it. Ok? Ok! With that said, this recipe was trendy reallyyyyy long ago. It kept popping up on blog after blog. It looked interesting but I had my own garlic rice pilaf recipe I loved and wasn't interested in straying.
The other night though for some strange reason this recipe popped in my head completely out of the blue. I decided to try it and seriously... oh... mah...gosh. I get it. I do. I get why this is so popular. It was delicious- perfectly seasoned, nice texture, and a nice golden color. I ate so much of this... more than I'll every admit to you. It's my new favorite side dish and I'm already dying to make it again. Will it replace my love for my old rice pilaf? Well... let's just say... they need to share my love evenly now. ::wink wink::
Oh and by the way- I was out of fresh lemons so I skipped the lemon juice and it was still amazing. I can't wait to try it with the lemon!
