Cooking with Basic Food Storage: Flavored Rice Mixes



I often buy rice mixes. My kids love them and I love the ease of preparation involved. Therefore, you can imagine my excitement when I found some recipes which I can make from scratch and save myself time and money!

To make flavored rice mixes:
Combine all ingredients and stir until evenly distributed. Place in airtight container(s). Store in cool, dry place. Use within 6-8 months. Yield: 4 cups.

4 T instant chicken bouillon
1 tsp salt
2 tsp dried tarragon
2 tsp dried parsley flakes
1/4 tsp white pepper

Dill Lemon Rice Mix

4 tsp dill weed or dill seed

2 tsp salt
8 tsp instant chicken bouillon

Onion Flavored Rice Mix

To make rice from mixes:
Use 1 1/3 c rice mix, 2 c cold water and 1 T butter or margarine. Combine all ingredients in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat and cook 15 minutes, until liquid is absorbed. Yield: 4-6 servings.
