    Default HOMEMADE RICE A RONI


    Was this the one you were referring to. Beef bouillon can be substituedd
    for chicken. I bought dryed tarragon from Penzeys. THey have an online web
    site.



    HOMEMADE RICE A RONI

    1 pound white rice
    1 pound spagetti noodles, broken in pieces
    1 medium onion chopped
    1 tablespoon chopped garlic (I buy big jars of it)
    1/2 cup chicken bullion powder
    1 tablespoon oil
    8 cups water

    In large deep frying pan with a lid, put onions, garlic, oil and cook until
    onions are clear, but not brown. Add rice and brown. Add spagetti noodles
    and stir to coat with oil. Add bullion powder and water, and cook over
    medium heat, stirring occasionlly.

    Sometimes I add frozen veggies or chopped chicken chunks. One could also
    substitute beef or other bullion for the chicken. This makes great leftovers
    for lunch or even with eggs for breakfast the next day.

    For the chicken flavored rice mix is calls for dried tarragon. None of the
    supermarkets around here carries that. What would be a good substitute
    seasoning??

    Another question. There was a recipe for the beef flavored rice (like rice a
    roni) on the site but now I cannot find it anywhere. Does anyone have a
    copy?

    Thanks in advance
    Michelle

    Default HOMEMADE RICE A RONI

    1 pound white rice
    1 pound spagetti noodles, broken in pieces
    1 medium onion chopped
    1 tablespoon chopped garlic
    1/2 cup chicken bullion powder
    2 tablespoons oil
    8 cups water

    In large deep frying pan with a lid, put onions, garlic, oil and cook until
    onions are clear, but not brown. Add rice and noodles. Cook until browned
    a little, stirring constantly so you do not burn it. If you do NOT want the
    noodles and rice browned, stir only until coated with the oil. Add bullion
    powder and water, and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionly. This
    makes about 10 cups.

    NOTES: Sometimes I add frozen veggies or cooked chunks of chicken. You
    could also substitute cooked beef with beef bullion in place of chicken with
    chicken bullion. This makes great leftovers for lunch or even with eggs for
    breakfast the next day. You could also use up leftover veggies in this
    dish, or melt a little cheese on top for variety. If you have homemade or
    canned stock, you could use this instead of the bullion and water, adding
    salt and spices to taste.

    I buy rice, chicken bullion powder, oil, and garlic in bulk at Costco as I
    find it cheaper there. I buy spagetti noodles anyplace I can find them the
    cheapest. This helps keep this a lot less expensive than it would be
    otherwise. My cost for making this is about $1.40 for about 10 cups.
    Compare this to those $1.29 boxes of Rice a Roni that make only 2 cups and
    you see where the savings can add up.

    Adding veggies and/or meat to this recipe increases your cost, but also
    increases the total cups to 11-12 cups. Adding small amounts of both meat
    and veggies can make this a wonderful one-pan complete meal. Again,
    leftovers are fantastic when reheated for lunches the next day, or rolled in
    a flower tortilla with a little grated cheese, or added to an omlette with a
    little cheese melted on top. The possibilities are endless if one uses
    their imagination.
