    Default Spanish Rice

    Spanish Rice




    Can be prepared in 40 minutes or less. One of my mother's signature dishes is her Spanish rice, a delicious accompaniment to steak,
    chicken, and Mexican entrees such as tacos or enchiladas. Spanish rice is prepared by browning the rice first with onions and garlic, before cooking it in chicken stock with added tomato. The browning is essential to the nutty, almost toasty flavor of the rice. And although bouillon can be substituted for the chicken stock, nothing beats homemade chicken stock, the rich flavor of which is absorbed by the rice.

    Ingredients
    2 tablespoons olive oil (can use up to 1/4 cup)
    1 onion, chopped fine
    1 garlic clove, minced
    2 cups of medium or long-grain white rice
    3 cups* chicken stock (or vegetable stock if vegetarian)
    1 heaping tablespoon tomato paste or 1 cup of diced fresh or cooked tomatoes, strained
    Pinch of oregano
    1 teaspoon salt

    *Check the instructions on the rice package for the proportions of liquid to rice. They can range from 1:1 to 2:1. If your rice calls for 2 cups of water for every cup of rice, then for this recipe, use 4 cups of stock for 2 cups of rice.

    Method
    1 In a large skillet brown rice in olive oil, medium/high heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook onion rice mixture, stirring frequently, about 4 minutes, or until onions are softened.

    2 In a separate sauce pan bring stock to a simmer. Add tomato sauce, oregano, and salt. Add rice to broth. Bring to a simmer. Cover. Lower heat and cook 15-25 minutes, depending on the type of rice and the instructions on the rice package. Turn off heat and let sit for 5 minutes.

    Serves 4 to 6.
