Garlic Herb Rice

31 Aug

If the world ever ran out of rice, my family might die. My kids might be ok – they are young enough that they would learn to adjust. But my husband, he’d be a goner for sure. I like this rice because it’s simple – surprise! 🙂 It’s kind of like a homemade version of Rice-a-Roni, but better than the boxed version, of course. I find the boxed mixes tend to have a mushy texture, so homemade wins hands down in my book. And it’s a nice little departure from just plain white rice on those night you feel like being a hair more adventurous.

Ingredients:

1 Tbsp butter

1 cup uncooked rice

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic

1/4 tsp basil

1 (14.5 oz) can of chicken broth

Melt the butter over medium heat in a saucepan. Add rice, onion powder, garlic, and basil. Stir occasionally until rice is slightly browned – about 5-7 minutes. Add chicken broth. Let mixture come to a boil then reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer for about 20 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed and rice is soft.
