Herb Mix For Rice

Prep/Total Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 4 batches (about 3/4 cup total)
5 tablespoons beef bouillon granules
3 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
2 tablespoons dried minced onion
4 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons garlic powder
Additional Ingredients (for each batch):
2 cups water
1 cup uncooked long grain rice

In an airtight container, combine the first six ingredients. Store in a cool, dry place for up to one year.

To prepare rice: In a saucepan, bring water and 3 tablespoons herb mix to a boil. Stir in rice. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Makes 4 servings.

Tips and Tricks
Save money with this easy mix in place of boxed flavored rices. Use low-sodium beef bouillon to reduce the salt.
