  • 1 cup short grain white rice
  • 1 Tbsp. dehydrated onion
  • 3 tsp. Knorr tomato bullion
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 cups water


  • Add all ingredients to rice cooker, swirl to combine. Cook until rice cooker says it is done. (Time depends on the type of rice cooker you own.)
  • Fluff with paddle to ensure even spice distribution before serving.


Remember different rice cookers cook at different rates and plan accordingly. I usually start my rice in the late afternoon and let it stay warm until dinner.
