First time: This was a great way to serve up rice, unfortunately my herbes de provence blend was a bit heavy on the lavender so it had too much of a soapy taste in a few bites, however that wasn't the fault of the recipe and my wife and I loved it!
Second time: learning from my previous mistake of not having all the herbs separate, I used 1/2 tsp of basil, marjoram, thyme, and rosemary. For authenticity sake, I added a dash of lavender. I used jasmine rice which called for a 1.25:1 ratio of water to rice, so I was worried it may have not absorbed all the water, but the rice came out absolutely perfect. While the portions of herbs I used ended up being a bit over 2 tsp, it still tasted great. I think next time I'll try doing a garni bouquet of the same 4 herbs + lavender and see how much better it gets. As it stands now, I'd easily build a meal around this if I had company I was trying to impress.
