Tomato Rice

What You Need:

-Garlic -Yellow Onion -Cooking Oil -Long Grain White Rice -Chili Powder

-Ground Cumin -Petite Diced Tomatoes -Tomato Paste -Vegetable Broth -Salt


Start by mincing cloves of garlic and finely dicing an onion.

Mince Onion And Garlic


Add the onion and garlic to a sauce pot with cooking oil. Sauté over medium until the onions are soft and translucent.

Sauté Onion And Garlic


Add long grain white rice, chili powder, and cumin to the pot.

Add Rice And Spices


Cook and stir the rice and spices for a couple of minutes more to slightly toast the rice and spices.

Cook Rice


Add petite diced tomatoes (with juices), tomato paste, vegetable broth, and salt to the pot. Stir to combine and dissolve any spices stuck to the bottom of the pot. 

Add Tomatoes And Broth


Place a lid on the pot, turn the heat up to high, and allow the broth to come up to a full boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to low (or lightly above low) to bring the broth down to a gentle simmer.

Cover And Boil


Let the rice gently simmer for 20 minutes without stirring or lifting the lid. After 20 minutes, remove the pot from the heat (lid still on) and let the rice rest for 5 minutes. This is what it looks like after simmering.

Let Simmer


Fluff the rice with a fork to redistribute the diced tomatoes, which float to the top as the rice simmers.
