    Mexican Style Brown Rice

    Traditional Mexican-style rice is usually made from white rice, but fiber-rich brown rice is just as delicious. A quick tomato and garlic puree adds a big boost of flavor without additional fat for a healthy side dish your whole family will enjoy. We suggest cooking this up in one of our favorite skillets, so you can go from stove to table in style. 


    Ingredients
    2
    tablespoons
    vegetable oil
    1 1/2
    cups
    dry brown rice
    2
    ounces
    sliced onions
    1
    tomato, chopped
    1
    clove
    garlic
    *
    kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    Directions
    Heat the vegetable oil in a 10-inch sauté pan with lid. Add the rice and onions, and sauté over medium heat until the onions are translucent, and the rice has turned opaque.
    Using a blender, puree the tomato and garlic with 3 1/4 cups water. Carefully pour the puree over the rice, and stir so that all of the rice is incorporated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    Lower the heat to a medium-low flame, cover, and allow the rice to steam for 35-40 minutes, until it is completely cooked and tender. Avoid removing cover of pan while the rice is cooking.
    Remove the rice from the heat, and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving.
