This is a wonderful pilaf which incorporated two of our favourites: hazelnuts and mushrooms. Great as a side dish or even a light meal in itself!
Yes, Stephanie, this WAS delicious! Hubby and I both enjoyed this so much. It's clear that toasting the nuts, the orzo and the rice made all the difference in the world. This took a blend of simple ingredients over the top! Pretty and brown,with a wonderful depth of flavor. Just the right amount of seasoning too, that was neither bland nor overpowering. Thanks for sharing your recipe! - 05 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
even without the nuts, this is good. Try it with wild rice and its better. - 26 Apr 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This recipe is excellent! The first time I made it was for a dinner party for 40 people and it turned out perfectly. Everyone raved about it. I added tarragon and used almonds instead of hazelnuts. It has become mine and my family's new favorite side dish! - 27 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
