Brown Rice Pilaf

2 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 small yellow onion, chopped

2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 cups long grain brown rice ( not instant)

4 ½ cups chicken base
salt & pepper, to taste


In a small skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring, until onion is golden, about 5 minutes.

Add rice and sauté for 1 minute.

Add broth, and season with salt and pepper to taste; bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low.

Simmer until rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 45-50 minutes. Check rice occasionally and add water if necessary.

Uncover and let rice stand for 5 minutes before serving.
