A nice side dish for poultry. I made a change in the rice/broth ratio, and cooking method on recommendation of some of the reviewers, and after trying it myself again. This changed the servings to 4 instead of 2. Thanks to all reviewers for your input!
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon ground sage
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup long grain rice
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- Melt butter in saucepan and stir in the sage. Turn off heat and let sit.
- In another sauce pan heat broth to boiling; add rice and lower heat.
- Simmer, covered until rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
- Put rice into serving dish and toss with sage butter and Parmesan.
This was so yummy... my husband even said over and over again how good it was, and he's a little tricky to please. I used a rice medley and cooked it in the rice maker using the amount of liquid recommended on the rice container. For the broth, I used homemade veggie broth with Better than Bouillon added... and I used 2 tbsp fresh sage from the garden.
I added one thing, but first let me tell you why. I recently started cooking "for real" a few months ago. Yesterday my 9 year old daughter would not try the rice I cooked because, "I only like Uncle Ben's rice!" <br/>So I made this recipe and I added a few drops of yellow food coloring, told her it was Uncle Ben's, and she fell for it! Of course, this recipe tastes a whole lot better than boxed seasoned rice, but what do kids know? :)
I doctored this up with leftover turkey from thanksgiving and made a good "turkey and rice" meal. I also added a little "heat" for flavor to help the blandness. I'd make this again! Good Thanksgiving leftover casserole!
