I never use Instant Rice but this recipe caught my eye - So simple. This dish goes nicely with a beef Fondue. Recipe originally from Soup Central

I added a LARGE clove of grated garlic,and a few Tbsps of chopped parsely. I've also done this with instant brown rice,and have,at times,sauted broken up vermicelli pasta with the onion in both varieties. Just make sure to let the pasta,(once browned),to boil for 3-5 minutes before adding your rice,and then let it sit,covered,for longer than the directions on the rice so that the pasta has sufficient time to soften. Bon Appetit!!
