Herbed Basmati Rice

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!

Note: You could definitely use fresh herbs, but you may have to use more.  Maybe, a full tsp as opposed to 1/2.DSC02752 DSC02754
