    Brown rice pilaf

    • Gluten Free
    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 35 minutes
    • Total time: 40 minutes

    Serves: 4


    40g unsalted butter
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 onion, cut into 0.5cm slices
    250g wholegrain rice
    800ml fresh guinea fowl stock (see page 44) or chicken stock, plus extra stock to top up, if needed 


    1. Heat the butter and olive oil in a wide, heavy-based pan. Add the onion and cook gently for 5 minutes, until translucent. Add the rice and a pinch of salt, stir for a few more minutes, then pour in the stock. Bring to the boil and simmer gently, uncovered, for about 20-25 minutes, until the rice is cooked and ideally, nearly all the liquid has been absorbed. If you need more liquid, top up with a little more stock or water. Season before serving.
