Herbed Rice Pilaf

1/2 cup whole wheat spaghetti, broken into

small pieces about

2 tablespoons non-dairy margarine, such as

Earth Balance

2 cups vegetable broth

1 cup long grain white rice

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed with

palms

1/2 teaspoon dried ground sage

2 teaspoons onion powder

2 teaspoons salt

In a medium pot with tight fitting lid, melt margarine over

medium-low heat. Add broken spaghetti and cook until

fragrant and brown. Watch pasta carefully, stirring

consistently, as it can burn very quickly once it begins to

color. Immediately add vegetable broth to stop pasta from

burning once a medium brown toasted color has been

reached. Add all remaining ingredients and stir to

combine. Turn heat up and bring to a rapid boil, then

reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook for 20 minutes and

then check, then cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or

until all liquid has been absorbed. Remove from heat and

let stand, covered, for 10 minutes. Fluff with fork and

serve immediately.
