I remember Rice A Roni as a kid...I loved it. Remember those commercials..."the San Francisco Treat." I always wanted my to make my own Rice a Roni and it's amazed me how simple it really was.
I've always wondered why they called it the San Fran Treat? Why not the St. Louis Treat, or New York Treat? Does anyone know why?
Let me know what you all think because this recipe is still in the works...
Rice and Roni My Way
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 pound pasta, vermicelli or spaghetti
1 cup long grain rice
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves, or 1 teaspoon dried parsley
2 cups chicken or beef broth
Break the dried noodles into 1/2 inch pieces and place olive oil in pot. Heat pot and place noodles in pot until they begin to brown lightly. Next place onion, rice, parsley, cumin, broth and salt. Stir mixture, cover tightly, and cook as you would regular rice, approximately 20 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork and serve.
