I wanted to highlight a side dish and I’m a big fan of baked rice dishes – they are so easy to create.  One of the first dishes I made in culinary school was a rice pilaf and so I go back to baked rice recipes time and time again.

Tip: Don’t forget to wash your rice!  This helps to get rid of the excess starch, giving you the perfect texture.
