    About this dish

    Rice Pilaf is great. Rice Pilaf with butternut squash is even better! This dish comes alive with the combined flavors of shallots, Parmesan cheese, parsley and — of course — butternut squash!

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
    • 1-1/2 cups UNCLE BEN’S®  ORIGINAL CONVERTED® Brand Rice, uncooked
    • 3-1/2 cups chicken or vegetable broth, hot
    • 1 cup diced butternut squash
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic pepper
    • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1/2 tablespoon chopped Italian flat leaf parsley 

    Instructions

    1. Heat butter in a heavy saucepan; add shallots and sauté until tender. Add rice and stir to coat. Add broth and butternut squash; bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.
    2. Add garlic pepper, salt, Parmesan cheese and parsley to rice pilaf and gently toss to blend.
    3. Serve garnished with additional Parmesan cheese if desired.
