Everyone loves convenience foods, right? Me too, I just don't like paying the extra money for them and I REALLY don't like what is in some of them! I have this seasoned rice mix in my cupboard at all times ready to use when time is running short on getting supper ready. I use Uncle Ben's whole grain brown rice and chicken bouillon but you could use any type of rice and whatever flavor of bouillon you like.
3 cups uncooked brown rice
1/4 cup dried parsley flakes
6 teaspoons instant chicken flavor bouillon
2 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
Combine all ingredients in a storage container with a tight fitting lid. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months. Stir well before each use.
To use, bring 2-1/4 cups water and 1 tablespoon butter to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in 1 cup of the seasoned rice mix. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Makes 6 (1/2-cup) servings.
We had some last night with baked salmon and steamed broccoli! YUM!! Linking to the Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop at Deborah Jean's Dandelion House! :)
