Number of Servings: 6


    2 tablespoons coconut oil
    1 1/2 cup dry, long-grain brown rice
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    2 tablespoons dry onions
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    2 cup chicken or beef broth
    1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
    3/4 cups water


Add about 1/2 cup chopped carrot and 1 cup frozen peas for a pilaf style dish, cook with rice.


Get out a 2 quart saucepan with a good lid. Heat the oil in it over medium high heat. Add the rice, and sautè it for a few minutes, until it turns opaque, and begins to smell toasty. Add the onion powder, dry onions, garlic powder, salt, bullion and water. Stir it all up and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to very low and cover the pot. Allow it to simmer over very low heat for 45 minutes. Remove from heat and serve.

To make a Rice 'a' Roni type of dish, replace 1/4 cup of rice with broken bits of whole wheat spaghetti.
