1015 sweet yellow onion, diced fine
tomato, fresh, diced fine
Knorr-Suiza Tomato Boullion with Chicken Flavor
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
minced garlic (OPTIONAL)
water (to cover rice, not necessarily 2 to 1 ratio)
In large skillet (with lid), heat Extra Virgin Olive Oil over Medium-Low heat.
Add diced Onion and season with a pinch of salt. Sweat the Onion over Medium-Low heat until translucent. Stir only to avoid any over cooking. OPTIONAL: Add Garlic when Onion is about half way done.
Add Rice. Increase heat to Medium. Cook until rice is light brown, stirring frequently.
Add Tomato. Sautee until Tomato begins to break down. NOTE: Rice will begin to soften slightly in the juices of the Tomato. This is OK as it will prevent the Rice from over browning.
Add Water to just cover the Rice.
Add V8. Stir to combine liquids.
Add Knorr-Suiza. Stir to dissolve completely.
Cover and reduce heat to Medium-Low. Allow to simmer 10-15 minutes or until all Rice is split open.
Remove stemmed Cilantro prior to serving. Use fresh plucked Cilantro leaves and a pinch of finely diced Tomato as garnish.
