  • [1/4] cup vermicelli noodles
  • 1 vegetable bouillon

Heat a 2-quart saucepan over low heat. Add extra-virgin olive oil and vermicelli noodles, and brown, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

Add vegetable bouillon and water, and bring to a simmer.

When water comes to a simmer, add brown basmati rice and salt, and stir. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 40 minutes.

After 40 minutes, turn off heat. Fluff rice with a fork, cover, and let rice sit for 15 to 20 minutes.

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.
