  1. Melt butter in skillet. Add the broken up pasta and saute until noodles are brown. Do not allow to burn.

  2. Add the onion and garlic, saute for a minute or two. Add the rice and toss to coat. Season with seasoned sea salt. Add enough water to cover rice and be about 1/2 inch over the top. Add broth packet and stir See Photo . Bring to a boil, reduce heat, then cover and simmer on low until rice is tender and all the liquid as evaporated (about 20 minutes).

  3. Remove from heat, remove lid and cover rice with a clean dish cloth. Put the lid back on and leave to rest for 15 minutes. Remove lid, add herbs and soy (just a little) and fluff with a fork (you'll be amazed how much flavor boost the tiny amount of soy gives!)
