Yesterday I shared my recipe for Sausage Stuffed Peppers. I served them with this super simple Herbed Basmati Rice.
Rice is a great starchy side and it is so versatile.
I can’t take credit for this recipe. I actually got it from Bob’s grandmother. She said she got it from the back of a bag of Basmati Rice years ago and hasn’t seen it since, but because it’s so easy, she remembers it and makes it a lot. This quantity serves 2, with a little bit left over.
- 1/2 cup Basmati Rice
- 1 cup water
- 2 T butter/margarine
- 1 tsp minced onion
- 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp dried marjoram
- salt to taste
You literally just throw all ingredients in a pot and cover it. Bring the water to a boil, then lower to a simmer for 15-20 minutes (or however long your bag of rice says). Fluff with a fork and serve. It’s that simple. And it’s so good. Very flavorful!
