Cardamom Rice Pilaf

Cardamom Rice Pilaf

I don’t have much to say about this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe, Cardamom Rice Pilaf.  It was delicious, the flavor was unique, the rice was cooked perfectly, and my whole family loved it.  But still, it’s just rice pilaf with the addition of bruised cardamom seeds and lemon zest.

I served the rice with Curried Chicken, Peppers, and Peas en Papillote, also from Around My French Table (I’ve been dying to try this recipe and making the rice gave me the perfect excuse).  The flavors of the two dishes went really well together.

Rice with Curried Chicken

If you are looking for a rice pilaf with a unique flavor, give this one a try!  I can’t wait to see what the other Doristas served with their Cardamom Rice Pilaf.

  1. I have seen a lot of great AMFT recipes popping up with today’s pilaf. Now I want to make the curried chicken ‘ahead of schedule’. The complete meal looks beautiful and light.

    That is a wonderful combination, curried chicken and rice pilaf. Your
    photos are really good. Tricia made her dish earlier in the week and
    they all thought it was terrific so I decided to give it a try. A simple
    dish that turned out to be quite tasty. Hubby and I both enjoyed it.

  3. It does seem like this rice was the perfect side for a lot of AMFT dishes. I served mine up with roasted chicken for lazy people!

  4. The rice and the curried chicken and peas look wonderful! I really need to do a few of the recipes from the book outside of FFwD. So far I have only done that ones from our group. Your wooden spoon is so pretty!

  5. Oh Yum! The curried chicken is now on my list to try, your dinner looks so good right now, getting close to dinner time and I know what I would like;-)
    AMFT is such a great cookbook, I continue to be impressed with everything I see the group make every week. Have a great weekend;-)

  6. Yumm…I haven’t done this curried chicken recipe but your picture above looks so gorgeous, I’m prompted to try it soon!

  7. Great minds think alike, Karen – I just made curry chicken the easy way! I love rice with peas & your dish is so colorful.

    Wow, I think you found the PERFECT accompaniment to this rice pilaf! What a beautiful plate~

  9. The curried chicken looks like a great pairing with the rice. I liked having an easy recipe this week. Glad you enjoyed it too.

  10. What a great, vibrant photo! That looks really good! The rice was pretty simple but the kids seemed to love it. Can’t wait till the Curried Chicken recipe comes up!
