What is Rice A Roni? It’s a delicious combination of spaghetti and rice, cooked in broth. I got the original recipe for this dish from my friend Michal, but I have tweaked it a bit over the years.


1/2 cup uncooked spaghetti, broken into small pieces

3/4 cup rice

2 tablespoons oil

2 cups water

quantity of chicken bouillon powder to make two cups broth (I use vegan/parve)

garlic and pepper, to taste


Brown spaghetti in oil till it starts to turn slightly golden. Add rice and continue cooking a few more minutes. Add bouillon powder plus water and simmer till water is absorbed. Add garlic and pepper to taste. Stir well.

Three Variations

For a fancier dish, try all three variations at the same time. For an every day dish, try just one of the variations at a time.

1. When cooking is completed, add 1-2 tablespoons soy sauce to taste.

2. Add 1/3 cup chopped almonds with the water. Continue with recipe as directed.

3. Add a small, finely chopped onion with the spaghetti. Continue with recipe as directed.
