Rice Pilaf with Vermicelli

Sometimes I get tired of plain white rice. This recipe combines rice and little noodles, so that all my carbohydrate needs are taken care of in one dish. Making rice with chicken stock adds a lot of flavour.
Plus there’s butter.

Here goes.

Melt butter in a medium sized saucepan.

1/2 cup vermicelli noodles

Pour in chicken stock and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low and cover the pot. Simmer for 15 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed by the rice and noodles. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
