Cajun Rice Pilaf Recipe

  • Author: Cullys Kitchen


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 small onion chopped about 1 cup
  • ½ cup chopped green bell pepper
  • ¼ cup celery (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic (crushed and minced)
  • 1½ cups long grain white rice (uncooked)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley (chopped)
  • ½ teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • Kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups low sodium chicken broth


  1. Melt the butter in a medium-size saucepan over medium heat, add the vegetables and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the rice and continue cooking until rice is lightly browned. Add the seasonings and mix in the chicken broth, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and most of the broth is absorbed.
  2. Fluff with a fork and serve hot.
