This is a nice twist on plain brown rice. The toasted noodles add a pleasing, toasted flavor to the earthy brown rice.

Tasty Tip
If you don't have or don't want to use bouillon, you can replace it and the water with 2[1/4] cups vegetable broth or chicken broth instead. I love using chicken broth when I have it on hand.
