Got this Recipe from my Aunt Michele!
I feel her rice was better when she made it than mine. But I tried it! I added extra ingredients as I always do, to make it my own!
So you will need:
oil (I used olive)
2 cups Instant Brown Rice
2 cups water
1 Can Fire Roasted tomatoes
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1/2 Green Bell Pepper, chopped
1 chicken Bouillon cube
Start by preheating a pot or large skillet over medium heat on stove, Coat the bottom with Olive oil
add the onions you chopped and saute
Cook for about 5-7 minutes then add in rice
saute the rice a little with the onions and oil, stirring constantly till rice and onions are a little bit more browned
then I added in the green bell pepper (I didn’t add these with the onions, like you probably should, as I didn’t want the bell peppers to cook long, wanted them to be a little crunchy in the rice, not soggy)
Stir in with rice
Then add in the fire roasted tomatoes with juice
stir to combine with onions and Bell pepper
then add in the 2 cups of water
then add in the chicken bouillon
turn heat down to medium low heat and place lid on pot and cook rice until there is no more water, about 10-15 minutes
Then take lid off and fluff rice a little with a fork
Serve with hot sauce or sour cream, or both! (not sour cream though, if you are trying to be healthy).
