Pilaf with Almonds

Pilaf is typically a rice dish – sometimes made with wheat in place of rice – typified by cooking the rice with herbs in broth. Sometimes it has meat in it, sometimes it’s just the side dish. It is known for having grains that don’t really stick together and are light and fluffy. In America, you often find browned orzo in rice pilaf. this particular recipe is called Pilaf with Almonds, but there’s no reference to almonds beyond the title. At the very end of the card it says “slivered onions” but I suspect that’s incorrect and should be almonds.
