Spanish Rice
  • This rice is a great side dish for many a main course. We love it with our tacos!

  • 1-28 oz. can whole tomatoes, preferably San Marzano
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 cups brown rice
  • 1 cup sweet onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 tablespoons fresh garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon serrano pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons oregano

  • Puree tomatoes and onions in a food processor.
  • Heat olive oil in a dutch oven at medium heat. Add rice and saute for about 4-5 minutes. Add serrano pepper and garlic, saute another minute. Add tomato and onion puree, cook about 2 minutes. Add cumin, oregano and salt. Add water and bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer. Put a lid on it and cook about 40-45 minutes untill tender. Sprinkle with lime juice and cilantro and fluff with a fork.
  • Sabroso!
