This is a fragrant, yummy rice. It is great with chicken and green beans! This is very easy to make. Substitute a mixture of thyme, marjoram, savory, and rosemary for dried herbes de Provence.

I couldn't agree more with other reviewers who suggested this is perfect as is although I just simply added a dab of butter. Hubby and I really enjoyed this pleasant and delicately herb-enhanced variation of simple white rice. Note: As I was cleaning up the kitchen after dinner I was going to throw the little that was left down the disposal. Hubs stopped me in my tracks and told me not to even tho' there wasn't even enough for another meal! That spoke volumes to me... Read More

Good flavor. Easily made vegan with vegetable bouillon and it was pretty good. Next time I'll be trying it with different spices. Read More

This was such a good idea! I substituted 1/2 t. each of Basil Rosemary Thyme and Marjoram because that's what I had on hand. Great! Read More

Easy & tasty rice dish. Instead of herbes de Provence I used sage thyme basil & rosemary. I threw it all into my rice cooker and it came out delicious. Read More

This was a good quick side dish & a nice change from plain old steamed rice. Since my jasmine rice calls for 1 1/2 cups water for every cup of rice I used that same proportion of chicken broth instead of the 2 cups called for. It was perfect. Very flavorful & went well with our Garlic Chicken dinner. Thank you for the recipe! Read More

We weren't big fans of this dish. I found that the flavour of the chicken broth really over-powered the delicate flavour of the herbs. I might try this again using vegetable broth - or even half chicken broth and half water. Read More

Omigosh this stuff is awesome! I am soooo addicted. I have been waiting for quite some time to try this and I finally did it is simply wonderful I didn't have any regular rice so I used Jasmine instead. It was a little too much liquid for the jasmine variety of rice so it was a little overcooked but absolutely delicious. Jennifer I can't thank you enough for this new favorite! Read More
