Herb Rice Blend. This rice blend is no boxed mix! Fresh ground parsley, basil, bouillon and thyme is a delight when added to rice or spaghetti. This blend also shines on chicken, fish, steak and as a compound butter (by adding 2 tbsp. of blend to a tub of butter, stir and refrigerate 24 hours). Great on garlic bread too. A kid favorite!
Try 3 1/2 tablespoons of this pleasing blend with 1 1/2 cups of uncooked rice, 2 1/2 cups of water, 1 tablespoon of butter and 10 pieces of spaghetti broken into pieces. Bring to a boil, then simmer 20 minutes.
This blend is also fantastic as a soup mix. Simply add 2 tbsps of this blend to 4 cups of chicken broth (low sodium please), 1 cup of diagonally chopped carrots and a pinch of crushed red chili. Let simmer for15 minutes or until carrots are tender. Next, add chicken breast and simmer until chicken Is cooked, about 15 minutes.
