Three Rice Pilaf

This recipe originally came from an online friend named Jo. She called it Jo's Sabbath Rice because it could be blended ahead of time and then cooked during church for potluck. It's truly delicious! I've adapted the recipe some and renamed it Three Rice Pilaf. I don't stick to any rules, but add whatever I have on hand that I think would be good. I vary the types of nuts and seeds, add fresh herbs on hand, add chopped scallions, and sometimes add a chicken-style seasoning or broth for added flavor. This is a great recipe for holidays!

Three Rice Pilaf

Into a rice cooker place 1/3, 1/3/, 1/3 portions of wild rice, brown rice and white rice in whatever proportions you want to feed.

Add appropriate amount of water and cook according to rice cooker directions.

Assemble a container with any variation in amount of the following ingredients:

Pine Nuts or Walnuts
Unsalted Sunflower Seeds
Chopped Olives (Black or Green)
Finely chopped Mushrooms
Finely chopped small amount of colorful bell pepper (orange, yellow, red)
Green onions thinly sliced
Pumpkin seeds
Very small amount of chopped jalapeno pepper
olive oil, drizzled and stirred into mixture

When rice is done, mix all the ingredients in and fluff with a fork. Garnish with parsley and red pepper rings. Serve from rice cooker if desired.
