Herb Rice

“Here’s a recipe that makes a delicious side for busy weeknight meals or a fun last-minute gift idea,” says Lexington, South Carolina’s Sam Prichard. “I layer the dry ingredients in a pint mason jar, cover the seal with a cute fabric square, then tuck instructions under the bow!”

    Served as a side dish to Baked Herb Catfish. It was a nice seasoned rice and was really good with the drippings from the baked fish. I did add 2 Tbsp lemon juice to the rice once it was cooked. Will be marking this as a favorite.
