Wow, so delicious! I prepared the caramelized onions in advance of my dinner party and let sit in the pan until I finished the dish with the rest of the dinner. Pre-measured everything else and had it all ready to go so it was super easy to finish. I made as indicated but substituted dried cranberries with great results, also used Jasmine rice as that is what I had on hand. I found the shelled raw pistachios in the bulk isle at the store and toasted and chopped them earlier in the day.
This recipe is a winner!
This was so... delicious!! I substituted dried cranberries and almonds since that is what I am able to find where I live. I used 1/2 cup white rice, 1/2 cup brown rice, and 1/2 cup wild rice. I brought this dish to a potluck dinner and it got rave reviews. Will definitely make this dish over and over again!!!
I loved this rice dish. It's simple, but fancy enough for company. I didn't have any pistachio nuts, so I used pine nuts which added a great nutty flavour. I'll definitely make this again.
I've never been a fan of rice pilaf, but this has made me a believer! I've made this over and over again, sometimes using cranberries instead of cherries or omitting the pistachios (depending upon what I have on hand). My family can't get enough!
This is my go-to recipe for dinner parties. The ingredients are pricey (dried cherries and shelled pistachios) but the result is absolutely fabulous and memorable. Never fails to get compliments.
We love this recipe! I don't ever want to lose it! I often add wild rice to it.
Very good and quite pretty.
