Stove-Top Directions: You Will Need: 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon water (For saucier rice, add up to 1/4 cup more water); 1 tablespoon butter or margarine (if desired). Step 1: Heat water, butter, rice, and seasoning mix to boiling in 2-quart saucepan, stirring occasionally. Step 2: Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer about 25 minutes without uncovering or stirring. Step 3: Remove from heat and uncover. Let stand 1-2 minutes until most liquid is absorbed. Makes about 2 cups. Note: Because stove-tops and saucepans differ, you may need to adjust heat and cook times. To Microwave: For two 1-cup servings. Stir together 1-1/4 cups warm water (For saucier rice, add up to 1/4 cup more warm water), 1 tablespoon butter or margarine (if desired), rice, and seasoning mix in 1-1/2-quart microwave-safe bowl. Cover; microwave on high 16-18 minutes without uncovering or stirring, until most liquid is absorbed. Stir. Cover; let stand 1-2 minutes. Important: Not recommended for 1,000 watt or higher microwaves. Because microwaves cook differently, times are approximate. Rice Cooker Directions: Use an 8-cup non-stick rice cooker. Stir together ingredients, increasing water to 1-1/2 cups. Follow usage instructions for your cooker. High Altitude (Above 3,500 Feet): Stove-Top: Increase warm water to 1-1/3 cups and simmer time to 35 minutes. Microwave: Increase warm water to 1-3/4 cups. Cover; microwave on high 5 minutes. Do not uncover or stir. Microwave on medium (50%) 25-27 minutes longer without uncovering or stirring. Make it a Meal: Stir one or more into finished rice: 1 cup cubed cooked chicken or turkey or 1 (5-oz) can chunk chicken, drained; 1/4 cup chopped almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts, raisins, finely shredded carrots, chopped dates, or chopped dried apricots; 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley; 1 (2-1/2 or 3-oz) jar or can sliced mushrooms, drained.
