This did not work for me, either. I used homemade soup stock instead of canned bouillon. In order to find out how much to use, I looked for other recipes using the ingredient. Most stated 10.5 oz, so I made calculations from there. I cooked this in my rice cooker, but used the amount of rice and liquid (based on 10.5 oz per can) given in the recipe. The result was much too wet. I did use salt and pepper, but also agree this is pretty bland, too.
I was not happy with this recipe. It was kind of bland and also to much water.
