At Connie Burke's home in Gaithersburg, Maryland, this colorful side takes the place of green bean casserole for special dinners. “It's quick to fix, goes with a variety of meats and tastes great,” Connie says.
“Rice doesn’t have to be a boring side dish,” declares Aurora, Colorado’s Janice Mitchell. “Beef consomme and a dash of hot sauce really warm up this recipe for a moist, savory pilaf. It goes well with pork, beef or chicken.”
I FOUND this recipe in a local paper and it has become my favorite topping for cauliflower. I like it because the glaze adds color and also enhances the flavor with a little zip. It works well with any entrée.
“While cleaning the freezer one day, I uncovered extra filling I had used in an appetizer. I decided to add it to the mashed potatoes for dinner…and it became an immediate favorite,” relates Laurie Balcom of Lynden, Washington.
While living in Milan with my husband, Leon, I picked up this recipe. Since it contains very little spice, this simple side dish is good for folks who can't eat spicy food.—Kathry Manwiller, Wyomissing, Pennsylvania
