    Tired of White Rice? Try Cypriot Rice Pilaf

    First slice and dice up the garlic and saute if off for 2 or 3 minutes, until you can see it getting quite soft and letting out the nice smell. Add the pasta and cook until the pasta just starts to brown. Add the rice and coat well with the oil, keep heating for about 2 or 3 more minutes stirring all the time so as to not burn the garlic, onion, or pasta.

    You should have the chicken stock on the stove an heating in a medium sized pot. Bung it all in the stock and cover and bring to a full boil. Add the tumeric. Let boil for one minute, then turn down to simmer and cook covered tightly for 20 more minutes. It should be done. If not because you had a little too much stock cook for a few minutes more with the pots top slightly open to reduce the moisture content. The stock to rice ratio is for 1 cup of rice and pasta use 1 1/2 of stock plus just a few drops more.

    I am going to serve it tonight with some chicken breasts I will stuff with sun dried tomatoes and onions. Nice with a green salad as well.

    My dad got the recipe about 50 years ago when we were on holiday in Larnaca Cypress.

    Goes really well with the onion garlic pepper marinade I will put up in a few days. The marinade can be used for chicken in a few hours, and for pork, lamb and beef, left overnight in the fridge.

    That breaks my dietary rules- only one carb.
    I guess it would work well just with rice though.

    The recipe makes no sense. Did you leave out the first paragraph?

    Okay I cant edit the post. 1 medium onion chopped finely
    5 large garlic cloves also chopped finely. Saute until just translucent, add the vermicelli pasta and cook till just starting to brown. Add the stock and tumeric, and spices as you like.

    Sorry about the first one guys.
