A kind of Brazilian "dirty rice", sans meat. This recipe serves 8, so whip up a batch next time you entertain!

  • Servings: Serves: 8
  • Prep Time: Bring 3 cups water to a boil in large saucepan; add rice.
  • Cook Time: Increase heat and allow mixture to thicken.

Ingredients:

¼ cup (60 Ml) Olive Oil
1 Large Onion, finely diced
3 cups (750 Ml) Raw Long-grain Rice
3 cups (750 Ml) Boiling Chicken Stock
3 cups (750 Ml) Water
2 Tomatoes, peeled, seeded, chopped, or ⅔ cup chopped canned tomatoes
Salt & Freshly Ground Pepper, to taste

Directions:

1. Bring 3 cups water to a boil in large saucepan; add rice.
