Celery Pilaf
Recipe type: Rice
  • 1 medium onion, minced
  • 2 medium stalks celery, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp dried dill
  • 1 to 2 tbs olive oil
  • ½ cup uncooked white rice
  • ½ cup uncooked cracked wheat
  • 2½ to 3 cups water (or light vegetable broth)
  • ½ cup or more of your favourite dried fruit
  • 1 cup of your favourite nuts
  • fresh or dried parsley to taste
  • fresh lemon for garnish
  1. Over medium heat, cook the onion, celery, salt, and dill in oil until everything is mixed and tender, about 8 minutes. Stir every couple minutes. Add the uncooked white rice and cracked wheat, and stir gently but constantly for 5 to 8 minutes. The goal is to make sure the rice and wheat are well-covered with the oil and seasonings.
  2. Add one cup of water and stir well. Let the liquid mixture cook down, uncovered, for about 3 minutes.
  3. Stir and add the rest of the water (less if you prefer firm rice, more if you like softer rice). Add the dried fruit, stir well, cover, and simmer over medium-low heat for 25 minutes, or until the water is absorbed and the rice and wheat are tender.
  4. Add nuts, parsley, and lemon garnish.
