      1/2 teaspoon Dry minced parsley
      1/4 teaspoon Garlic powder
      1/4 teaspoon Onion powder
      1 teaspoon Ground turmeric
      1/2 teaspoon Ground cumin
      1/4 teaspoon Ground ginger

      Rice Mixture
      2 cups Water
      2 tablespoons Butter or margarine

      1/3 cup Dry wild rice


      Combine all of the ingredients as listed in Dry Mix in medium saucepan. Add to this water, butter, rice and dry wild rice. Bring to boil. Stir once or twice just to combine.

        I tried this recipe and then found out that wild rice takes about 20 minutes (or more) to be thoroughly cooked so mixing all the ingredients together won't cook up properly. I'm still going to try to make this work, though. My husband LOVES the Uncle Ben's stuff so if I can make it at home for less, by golly I will

      Hey Buddy,

      Easy fix... rinse with vinegar.

      Exact method varies with dishwasher model. I just open mine up and throw in half a cup.
