      1/4 teaspoon Garlic powder
      1/4 teaspoon Onion powder

      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
