How to Make Spanish Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. Directions: uses a 12 inch frying pan with a thight fitting lid

    Add the oil to the pan and put heat on to medium high. Add the rice and saute until golden brown approximately 10 - 15 minutes. Then add the onion and bell pepper and saute another 5 - 10 minutes.

    The important thing is to make sure the rice is toasted to a nice golden brown.






    Using a garlic press, add the minced fresh garlic by squeezing the press and cutting off the garlic as it comes out, with a knife.

    Continue to saute for an additional 3 minutes. You will notice a wonderful garlic aroma.

    Add the tomato puree, chicken broth and salt. Stir and turn heat up to high. Bring to a full boil while stirring. Continue to boil for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

    When it's done, turn off the heat, remove the lid and stir in the peas. Replace the lid and wait 5 minutes before serving.


    Cooking is like an art and it's okay to try different things and experiement. So if you think of something different you want to add, go for it.
