Italian Herbs Rice with Thermomix

Basil, Rosemary and Parsley: if you mix them together with your Thermomix they become a fantastico, scented and healthy sauce. Actually, this Italian Herbs Rice recipe is believed to have relaxation powers: try it and let me know!

My Italian father-in-law taught me this recipe. He personally prepares it with the fresh herbs that he picks in the Tuscan countryside.


Serves 4 people

- 300 g Rice
- 10 g Basil
- 10 g Rosemary
- 10 g Parsley
- 30 g Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 Garlic Cloves
- Rice Cooking Water as much as needed
- a pinch of Sal
- Parmigiano Reggiano (or other parmesan cheese)

How to prepare the Italian Herbs Rice

To make the sauce, put the basil, the rosemary and the parsley in the Thermie bowl. 20 Sec. Speed 7.

Gather them with the spatula and mix again. 20 Sec. Speed 7.

Add oil and salt. 30 Sec. Speed 7.

Gather them with spatula and mix again. 30 Sec. Speed 7.

Put the garlic cloves in the bowl and let everything sit there for 15 minutes. Remove the garlic cloves before adding the sauce to the rice.

Now, let's prepare the rice. You can cook it in the Thermomix (after preparing the herbs sauce). Pour 1 litre of water in the bowl and wait until it boils. 7 Min. 100°C Speed 1. When the water boils, cook the rice according to what's written on the packet.

If you prefer, you can fry the rice in a pan, but you must remember to keep a bit of cooking water aside.

Once the rice is cooked, add the aromatic herbs sauce and, if it seems too thick, add the cooking water you previously set aside.

If you like, you can spread some parmesan cheese on it.
