3/4 c tomato; Chopped
1/4 ts Cummin
1 tb Vegetable oil
1 1/2 Cloves garlic; Smashed
1/4 ts Chili powder
1/3 c Onions; chopped
1 c Chicken Stock
1/2 c Raw rice

Original recipe makes 1



Slowly brown the rice in the oil, stirring frequently, so it does not scorch. While browning the rice, be heating the chicken stock to the boiling point. When the rice is lightly browned, add the onion, garlic and tomatoe and continue cooking till the onion is soft. Add the boiling chicken stock, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. DO NOT lift the lid or stir while cooking the rice. Note! The first time you make it, drain any juice from the chopped tomatoe, other-wise it may turn out to moist, or cut back on the chicken stock to make up for the tomatoe juice. Later you will find out how much your liquid your brand of rice will obsorb. Posted to EAT-L Digest 25 Aug 96 From: Edward Tucker Date: Mon, 26 Aug 1996 19:01:26 -0700

This came out great! I did have to cook it a little longer and add more chicken stock, but it was absolutely tasty!

As a vegan, I sub in my vegan broth made with The Spice House's poultry seasoning. Perfect subin for this chicken broth. Also, no fat for this girl. My no stick pan for browning the rice then when adding onion etc,I add 2Tb. Broth for no sticking.
