2 coils of vermicelli (about 1/3 box)
½ stick of butter/margarine
2 boxes Uncle Bens rice pilaf
1 can chicken broth
2-3 C water
1 chicken bouillon
fresh garlic crushed to taste (I use 1 clove)
seasoning packets from UB pilaf
Melt butter and brown vermicelli in an electric skillet or deep fry pan. Add all other ingredients and let simmer covered, stirring occasionally for 20-25 min. After the water seems absorbed (about 10-12 minutes) I taste the rice and see if it's tender. If not, I add a little more water and continue to simmer. By doing it this way, I usually end up using 3 C of water.
