  • ½ Cup Brown Rice
  • ¼ Cup Gluten Free Spaghetti broken in pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 ½ Cup Chicken Stock
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Oregano


  • Melt the butter in a medium pot
  • Add rice and pasta, toast slightly
  • Add remaining ingredients
  • Cover with a lid and simmer for 25-35 minutes until pasta and rice are tender


  • Use gluten free spaghetti noodles: Gluten-free vermicelli noodles will fall apart.
  • Use brown rice for a healthier version
  • Cook the rice in chicken stock: This gives that comforting flavor found in the box mixes.
  • Use a low sodium chicken stock: You don't want it to get too salty while the rice cooks!
  • If following a gluten-free meal plan, look for gluten-free chicken stock.
