I never made rice pilaf till the other day. I usually get my fix as a side when I go out to a restaurant, so I never needed to try my hand at it. After looking around the web, I took a few ideas from other recipes and came up with my own.
My first try worked out to be the best rice pilaf that I ever had! I will keep experimenting with it, but I don't think that any radical changes will be necessary.
This is an incredibly delicious and easy to make trail food that has even made it on to our Thanksgiving Dinner table at home.
We have played around with it quite a bit and we now have two different versions, the backpack version where weight is a concern, and the home, car camping and sea kayaking version where it is acceptable to carry a little more weight in exchange for slightly better food and less prep work at home.
