2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme
(1 tablespoon of this Creole Seasoning for every 1 cup of uncooked rice)
1 cup rice rinsed before cooking
2 1/2 - 3 cups water
Or whatever you like
- Combine all ingredients and Creole Seasoning, except the rice, into a pot with the 2 1/2 - 3 cups of water and bring to a boil to marry the flavors.
- Add the rinsed rice and bring back to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer.
- Simmer for 35 minutes or until rice is cooked. May have to add more water while cooking depending on your altitude. almost all the water should be cooked away when finished (just like cooking rice).
- If adding can meats or sausage add these 15-20 minutes after simmer begins so they are heated thoroughly.
