Dairy and Gluten Free Herbed Rice

My husband loves rice.  Not just in the normal way that most people do though.  If he could or more accurately if I would let him, I think that he would eat rice every day.  While him being a rice lover is good in the sense that we eat gluten free because of my health, it also can get boring just eating plain rice all the time.  This recipe was born out of my need for something a little different and has turned into one of his favorite rice dishes.  It is a great way to use that leftover plain rice.

Herb Rice

1 small onion, finely diced
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tbs olive oil
1 tbs dried parsley
1 tbs dried dill weed
1/2 tsp California blend garlic salt (or more)
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 stick vegan buttery alternative
4 cups cooked white rice

In a skillet over medium heat, saute the onions in the olive oil until tender but not browned.
Add the garlic and continue to cook for a minute or two longer.
Add the herbs, salt and pepper then cook for a few seconds.
Add the vegan buttery alternative and allow to melt before adding the rice.
Stir gently to coat the rice in the herb and buttery mixture.
Continue to cook over medium heat stirring occasionally until the rice is hot through.
