"Maybe I didn't make this right but I found it to be too bland. I had to add salt to it, and I never do that. Once the salt was added, I was able to taste the other herbs a lot better. There are other, better recipes out there. I probably won't be using this recipe again."

"Very nice. Used 4 tablespoons herb mix to 2 cups raw long grain rice and 3 cups water in rice cooker. May even use a little more herb mix next time or even stir through a little butter. 10/10. Thanks for a lovely recipe. Such a nice change from plain rice."

"This is a great addition to plain rice. As the previous reviewer suggested, I used less than called for for 1 cup rice (I used 1 1/2 tablespoons of mix). I have also used this to flavor bread crumbs or flour for breading, and I dusted about 1 teaspoon on top of a pot roast before cooking."

"I always prepare this recipe. The rice tastes great, but I use 1 tablespoon of herb mix to every 1 cup of uncooked rice.

Thank You!"
