This is a great recipe to keep on hand as a side dish for anything from burritos to quesadillas.  It doesn’t require a lot of preparation and will simmer while the rest of dinner is made.



2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
2 cups uncooked rice
2 to 3 cups chicken stock (depending on the rice’s cooking instructions)
1 heaping Tablespoon tomato paste
1/4 teaspoon oregano
Salt to taste

In a large frying pan with lid, brown the rice, onion and garlic in the olive oil until golden.  Meanwhile, bring the chicken stock, tomato paste, oregano and salt to a boil, stirring frequently.  When thoroughly blended, add to the rice and simmer 15 to 25 minutes, according to the rice’s cooking instructions.  Stir once and serve hot.

  1. Wait so are you saying I need to brown UNCOOKED rice with the onions & garlic in the olive oil?? That just seems weird…

  2. Hello! I am finally getting around to meeting all of the wonderful women who kindly commented on my blog last week during the Mom's Monday Mingle. There are so many fashion and lifestyle blogs out there, that I rarely come across a blog that is dedicated to farm life and family life too! I LOVE this! My hubby and I have always dreamed of restoring an old farmstead, and now that our boys are getting older, they can help! We just have to find a place first. I'm looking forward to keeping up with your family happenings. Blessings to you and your family this Christmas! ~ Susan
