Better Than Boxed (Think famous brand) Rice Mix

Rice Mix
2 C uncooked rice
1 C uncooked spaghetti, broken into small pieces
1/4 C dried parsley
6 T. chicken or beef bouillon
2 t. onion powder
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. thyme, optional

Mix all ingredients well and store in an air tight container. Cook for twenty minutes as you would any rice on the stove top.

    1. In USA a capital 'T' means tablespoon and a small 't' means teaspoon. I guess I forgot that not everyone in all countries does the same thing. I'll write it out from now on. Thank you for pointing that out.

    2. Thanks Angie , I wandered if that was the case . Thanks for the clarification. I was thinking Angie that this recipe presented in a nice jar would make a nice Christmas gift in a food hamper. Perhaps with some other of your recipes like a jar of pickles . I can't wait to make this recipe .

    3. My daughter's family came over for dinner tonight and I cooked this for a side. It was so good on the first day of fall like weather. It does make a great gift with the cooking instructions tagged on the jar. Enjoy/

  4. That recipe is quite new to me! And I have never seen a rice mix in German shops that´s combined WITH spaghetti.
    Aren´t spaghetti too soft when cooked as long as rice? Or should it be this way (I mean, very soft)?
    I really should try.

    1. I've made it and eaten it with spaghetti in it and it works. What you are saying makes perfect sense, but somehow it works. The manufactured product uses something close to 'orzo'. When I made this yesterday I started using spaghetti, but remembered I actually have orzo so mine has a mix of both in it. Also, I've always made it with chicken bullion powder rather than beef, so I can't say how good the beef one is. The chicken one is yummo!
