I love this rice. It has a nice taste to it.....not really a savoury rice with lots of vegetables but you could add these if you wanted

3 tablespoons butter

1 med. onion, finely chopped.....microwave 1 minute or until butter has melted, then add

1 cup Basmati rice....stir then microwave 3 minutes.

Blend together:

2 1/2 cups hot water

1/2 cup white wine

4 stock cubes - chicken or I use Vegeta powder. approx. 4 teaspoons

Add 1 cup of the liquid to the rice and cook another 5 minutes.

Add remaining liquid and microwave 12- 14 (I split the difference). Allow to stand for 5 minutes before serving. Can garnish with chopped chives or parsley.
