Tomato Rice Pilaf
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1 cup dry, long-grain brown rice
- 14 oz can chopped tomatoes
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1-1/2 cups water
To make this dish, you will need a sauce pan with a tightly fitting lid. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Add the onion and sautè it until it becomes fragrant, and translucent (see-through). Add the rice and continue to sautè until the rice toasts a little bit. This should only take a couple of minutes. Next add the tomatoes, salt, pepper and water. Stir it all up and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and put the lid on. Simmer over low heat for about 45 minutes, or until the rice is tender. This makes a great side dish or even a main dish for lunch or supper. If you are using it as a main dish, serve it topped with a fried egg, whole grain muffins and a tall glass of milk. This is a simple dish, but is tastes very good, especially when the cook is tired, and the wind is howling outside. Serves 6 as a side dish, or 4 as a main dish. When I make this as the main supper dish for the whole family, I double the recipe so no one leaves the table hungry.
