turkish style

rice pilaf 

This recipe is truly one of my favorites of all time . It is very easy to make and it is ready in 30 minutes . The toasted noodles give it and nutty taste that compliments the aromatic Jasmine rice so well I can't even explain well how delicious it is. The only way you'll understand is by trying it hehehe..... It can be easily made vegan by using butter substitute and vegetable bouillion . I hope you enjoy my version and make it for loved ones ;)
