This is awesome-I absolutely love it. My wife used to make Rice-a-Roni, but not anymore. This recipe beats it 1,000 times over-I could eat it everyday

We thought this was great. Even my husband,, who isn't on a kidney diet, enjoyed this. Will definitely make again!

Cut down on the mushrooms (apprx 75 mg of potassium each) for more strict renal diets calling for less potassium. Happy healthy eating! BBq Barb Dietitian Comment: There are no mushrooms in this recipe but you could add them. If you add 1/2 cup of mushroom peices to the recipe the potassium goes from 87 mg to 105 mg per serving of rice pilaf.

I would use broth or low sodium broth for myself, but I know that my patients in the clinic are using bouillon cubes because they are more affordable. Either version will yield tasty pilaf. :)

why not use reduced sodium chicken broth instead of at least one cup liquid or both...Dietitian comment: Yes you could substitute 1 to 1-1/2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth to replace the bouillion cube and equalk amount of water. Sodium will be approximately the same. Bouillion cubes range from 650-950 mg sodium and reduced-sodium broths range from 400-550 mg sodium.
