OK, so I'm really grasping at straws here because I was totally unprepared for Alphabe-Thursday up until a few minutes ago. We're already up to the letter "G" and I had to quickly come up with a post. Then I dug into one of my recipe boxes and came up with a GOOD recipe for Rice and Vermicelli. For more Alphabe-Thursday posts head over to Jenny's blog, Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent."
I haven't been around lately reading blogs or answering E-mails, but things were kind of hectic over the holidays. I came down with a cold on Christmas Day, our oldest son and his cats were temporarily camping out in the computer room, and time just seemed to fly. Then Reid gave me season three and four of The Amazing Race on DVD for my birthday and I've been watching those episodes in my spare time.
I'll have a family catch up post soon, but for today I wanted to post another recipe and decided on "G" for GOOD tasting food and GOOD for you. This is a pretty simple recipe and we have it often as a side dish with chicken. It only takes a few minutes to put together and then you just pop it in the oven for 30-45 minutes. I always use brown rice in this recipe and it has only one tablespoon of butter which makes it healthier. I found this recipe somewhere online around ten years ago.
Rice and Vermicelli
1 cup rice (I use brown rice)
½ cup thin spaghetti broken in 2 inch pieces
1 chicken bouillon cube
2 cups hot water
1 Tablespoon butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a casserole dish melt butter on stove (I spray the casserole with a little PAM first); add rice and spaghetti and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes. Add water and chicken bouillon cube and stir until cube dissolves. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes (45 minutes for brown rice). Serves 4
I don't have a picture, so you'll have to use your imagination.
