Lentil White Bean Pilaf Recipe

Vegetarians will be happy to see this hearty meatless grain pilaf on the holiday buffet table. I like to make this when I have extra cooked lentils, barley, quinoa and rice on hand. —Juli Meyers, Hinesville, Georgia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 27, 2015

"I prepared this recipe using Minute Multi-grain Pilaf and the barley. I used canned lentils as well as canned white beans. I substituted chicken broth and reconstituted some shiitake mushrooms since I did not have fresh. This is an excellent recipe! We had it as a side to grilled swordfish. It is savory and colorful. Thank you, Juli for submitting this recipe. It's a keeper!"

"I just made this tonight and it is delicious! I used brown rice instead of the long grain white rice and Earth Balance instead of the butter. I didn't get any "browned bits" in the pan using the Earth Balance but it didn't matter to me. Very tasty, filling and it makes a lot!"

"I made this as a side dish for Christmas dinner and everyone loved it. It does make enough to make it a main dish."
