I just tried this and it is really good, even makes brown rice taste good. Only problem you can’t make rice pudding with the left overs.

Homemade seasoned-rice mix.

What you need:

* 3 cups uncooked rice
* 1/2 cup dried parsley flakes
* 6 tbsps chicken/beef bouillon powder
* 2 tsps onion powder
* 1/2 tsp garlic powder
* 1/4 tsp dried thyme

What to do:

Mix all the ingredients and store in a dry airtight container.

To cook:

* In a saucepan, mix 1 cup of the mix with 2 tbsps of butter, and 2 cups of water.
* Bring to a boil and cover.
* Reduce heat to a simmer.
* Simmer for 15 minutes or until the rice is tender.
