For my backpacking rice recipes, I precook the rice in chicken, beef or vegetable broth to give the rice extra flavor before I dehydrate it. If you don't have time for that, use instant rice and enclose a small chip of a bouillon cube with each meal. Cooking with dehydrated rice or instant rice on the trail is much faster and saves fuel. See Dehydrating Rice.
Cook white or brown rice in chicken broth and dehydrate; or use instant rice.
Pack powdered milk and seasonings in a small plastic bag and enclose with other ingredients in plastic bag.
For an interesting vegetarian meal, substitute dried apples and raisins for chicken.
On the Trail:
Combine all ingredients except powdered milk and seasonings with water in pot and soak for five minutes. Light stove, bring to boil, and cook for one more minute. Remove from stove, stir in powdered milk and seasonings and wait ten minutes.
