Prepare rice according to package instruction adding salt but leaving out added oil or butter. While rice is cooking, melt butter with oil in a sauté pan. Over very low heat, stir fry garlic for 1 minute being careful not to brown or burn. Add minced herbs and stir for another 30 seconds. Remove from heat. When rice is done, stir in herbs and garlic, making sure to get all of oil and butter in as well. Fluff the rice with a fork and serve.
