Polynesian Rice
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 10 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 5 cups hot water
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoons pepper
  • ½ cup butter (1 stick)
  • ½ cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 3 carrots, grated
  • ½ cup bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups Uncle Bens converted rice
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Add the rice (must use Uncle Bens) to a 13x9" pan.
  3. Dissolve the chicken bouillon cubes in hot water. Add the salt and pepper and pour over the rice.
  4. Bake the rice for 35 minutes uncovered. While the rice is baking, chop the vegetables and sauté in the butter just until soft.
  5. Add the butter/veggie mixture to the rice, gently stir around. Add ¼ cup water to the rice if it seems dry).
  6. Bake covered with foil for another 25 minutes.
  7. Fluff and serve!
I have used the carrots that are already grated from the store and they work great. I have also used chicken base such as better than bouillon in place of the cubes and it works! But make sure you use Uncle Ben's converted rice, regular rice will not work in this recipe.
