The way Lebanese rice is prepared is very unique. It is very similar to a Western packed rice dish "Rice-a-Roni", but without the spices.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
- 1 1/2 cups rice
- 1/2 cup vermicelli, broken to small pieces
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 1/4 cups water
Brown vermicelli in butter in large pan. Add rice and water. Bring to a boil, then simmer on low for 20 minutes, or until water is absorbed and rice is tender.
You can serve this rice with chicken, lamb, or any meat dish. It is great with soups and stews, too.
