Method: 
In a medium saucepan, combine rice, salt and 3 1/2 cups water and bring to a boil. Cover with a tight-fitting lid, reduce heat to low, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and let rest, with the lid on, for 10 minutes. Set aside.


Meanwhile, heat butter and oil in a skillet over low heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add herbs and stir to coat. Remove from the heat and add to the cooked rice. Fluff the rice with a fork before serving.
