Ann's Rice Pilaf Recipe


Golden bits of vermicelli pasta add a toasted flavor to this quick pilaf. Use your favorite seasoning in place of Greek seasoning, if desired.


  • 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
  • 2 cups water
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¾ cup broken pieces vermicelli pasta
  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Greek seasoning, or to taste


  1. Dissolve chicken bouillon in water in a bowl.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir vermicelli pieces until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour bouillon mixture into the skillet with the vermicelli.
  4. Stir rice, black pepper, salt, and Greek seasoning into the vermicelli mixture and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low; simmer until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
