Erika's Rice Pilaf

3 Tbls. butter
1/3 c. chopped onion
1/3 c. shredded carrot
1 c. water
1 1/2 tsp. instant chicken bouillon
A pinch of salt (no more then 1/8 tsp.)
1/4 tsp. poultry seasoning
dash of pepper
1 c. minute rice

combine all ingredients except rice in a 2 quart casserole dish. Cover and cook 5-6 minutes in the microwave. Stir in rice. Cover and cook 3-5 more minutes. Set aside; keeping covered for 5 minutes or until water is absorbed.

Also, between the poultry seasoning, the chicken bouillon cubes, and the salt it is very salty, so keep this in mind when you add the salt....USE SPARINGLY!

I love this side dish. It is fairly quick, but yet it tastes like you've been cooking it all day long!
