I like to heat up a bowl of this rice, add a couple of poached eggs over the top, and it makes a delicious breakfast or lunch.
1/4 colive oil
2 Tbspbutter or bacon drippings
1 largeyellow onion, chopped
2 clovegarlic, chopped
2 to 3 largetomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
3 cbeef or chicken broth
2 clong grain rice
·salt and fresh ground black pepper
·chopped cilantro for garnish (optional)
How to Make Tomato Rice
- Heat the oil and butter in a large saucepan over moderate heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook 5 minutes, until soft but not brown.
- Add the tomatoes, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
- Add the broth and bring to a boil. Stir in the rice, salt, and pepper, and cover. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook covered until the rice is done, about 20 minutes.
- Fluff with a fork and garnish with chopped cilantro if desired.
