Mediterranean Spice and Herbs Rice Mix Packets

Mediterranean Spice and Herbs Rice Mix
2 cups par-boiled rice (I used brown minute rice)
1/4 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
½ tsp parsley
½ tsp thyme
¼ tsp ground allspice
½ tsp ground pepper
1/8 to ¼ tsp chili powder
1/8 to ¼ tsp cumin
1/2 to 1 tsp salt (use less if using broth instead of water)

Mix all ingredients in a ziplock bag.  Add salt or wait to season to taste after cooking.  Write the following directions on the bag: Bring 2 cups water or broth to boil.  Stir in rice mix and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes.  Pull off heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes.  Add salt to taste if not included in mix.
