Flavored Rice Mixes

Onion Rice Mix:
4 cups uncooked rice
1 envelope onion soup mix
1/4 cup dried minced onion
1 T. parsley
1/2 t. salt

Lemon Dill Rice Mix:
4 cups uncooked rice
1/4 cup grated lemon peel
1/4 cup powdered chicken soup base
2 T. dill
1 T. chives
1/2 t. salt

Creamy Herb Rice:
4 cups uncooked rice
1/2 cup instant nonfat dry milk
1/4 cup dried minced celery
2 T. parsley
2 T. thyme
1 T. marjoram

Combine the ingredients specified for each different mix, and store each different mix in a glass jar or tightly closed container on the pantry shelf for up to 4 months.

To Use: Mix 1 cup of any of the rice mixes with 2 cups of liquid, either water, juice, broth, or a combination. A Tablespoon of butter or margarine is a nice addition. Place the rice, liquid, and butter on high heat and bring to a rolling boil. Immediately reduce the heat to very low, cover and simmer the rice for 10-15 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. To cook in a microwave, combine the rice, liquid, and butter in a 1 1/2 quart casserole, and heat, uncovered on high or full power for 12 minutes. Top and stir once or twice during the cooking. Cover the casserole and let rice stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Variations: It's easy to make a meal in one pot if you sprinkle a cup of rice mix around a roast or several meat or fish pieces before baking. Just
remember to add 2 cups of liquid, cover, and bake for at least 30 minutes or until meat is tender. Or, try serving the prepared rice combined with stir fried vegetable, shrimp, or chopped ham. When making Spanish Rice, it's a good idea to
use tomato juice or sauce as the liquid. The mixes make 32 oz. each.

Batter Fried Vegetables

Mushroom, onion rings, carrots, asparagus, zucchini and yellow squash
broccoli, cauliflower

Pancake batter mixed according to directions

Dip vegetables in batter. Deep fry in vegetable oil.

I wonder if this is the rice pudding recipe that Athena has been hoping to find. It is from the 60s or maybe even earlier, as I remember my mom and other relatives making it, when we were kids.

Fluffy Rice Pudding

1/2 cup rice, not instant
3 Cups whole milk
1 Cup Sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated milk
2/3 Cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon - optional
3 Eggs separated
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract - can use other flavors of extract
3/4 cups fruit- optional

In a double boiler or heavy bottom saucepan combine rice, milk, sweetened condensed milk sugar, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Cook over medium heat until the rice has absorbed most of the liquid, stirring frequently. Remove from heat, cover and cool slightly. Beat egg yolks and quickly stir in the rice mixture to prevent curdling. Return to heat and cook until the mixture coats the back of a silver spoon. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract and fruit, if using. Let cool.

Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff peaks form, then stir in to cooled rice mixture. Spoon in to parfait glasses. Can add toasted coconut, chocolate curls, or nuts to top, if desired.
