Ingredients

How to make it

  • Melt butter in skillet. Add the broken up pasta and saute until noodles are brown. Do not allow to burn.
  • Add the onion and garlic, saute for a minute or two. Add the rice and toss to coat. Season with seasoned sea salt. Add enough water to cover rice and be about 1/2 inch over the top. Add broth packet and stir See Photo. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, then cover and simmer on low until rice is tender and all the liquid as evaporated (about 20 minutes).
  • Remove from heat, remove lid and cover rice with a clean dish cloth. Put the lid back on and leave to rest for 15 minutes. Remove lid, add herbs and soy (just a little) and fluff with a fork (you'll be amazed how much flavor boost the tiny amount of soy gives!)

    It's been a while since I've had rice-a-roni and it was lovely to make it from scratch. Thanks, Luisa! I will be making this again.

    Warsawnan: the towel is to absorb condensation and to prevent steam from escaping.

    Trader Joe's Savory Broth Chicken Flavor comes in pouches, thick concentrated paste that you squeeze out :-)

    Sounds yummy. I'll give it a try. Why the dish cloth on the rice? Seems an odd step.

    Looks really yummy. I totally remember the commercial but honestly don't think I ever ate it. Bookmarked so I can now. Thanks!

    The homemade Rice A Roni looks great. Real Rice A Roni is just too salty. Does anyone know if Trader Joe's Savory Broth Chicken Flavor a boullion cube or is is chicken stock?

    I like rice, this is and easy receipe I can knock up pretty quick. For me, I would like to add some left overs like pork or chicken bits. I suppose because - I can.
