Homemade Whole Grain Rice-a-Roni

26 Dec

I found this recipe a little while back and have just been waiting for the perfect moment to try it out!  Well that perfect moment has arrived :D



Whole Grain Rice-a-Roni

Yields 4 servings


3/4 cup brown rice, uncooked

1/4 cup broken spaghetti or angel hair pasta

1 tablespoon dried minced onion

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1 tablespoon vegetable bouillon (about 2 cubes using this brand) crumbled, unsalted if preferred

2 tablespoon Earth Balance buttery spread

2 1/2 cups water




In a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat, combine the water and Earth Balance.  In a small bowl, stir together the brown rice, broken pasta, minced onion, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and crumbled bouillon; add to the saucepan and stir.

Bring to a gentle boil, lower heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the rice is cooked and the liquid is absorbed, between 25 and 30 minutes.  Enjoy :D
