1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 small onion, diced
1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
4 oz. tomato sauce
1-1/2 cups vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon cumin
In a saucepan, over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and rice. Stir to coat rice and cook until the rice starts to puff and turn golden (do not brown). Add onions and cumin, season with salt to taste, and cook until the onions begin to soften. Add tomato sauce and broth.
This rice is so creamy and full of flavor. We topped ours last night with seasoned black beans and shredded cheese for a quick, filling meal. We had to decorate our tree so I needed to make something quick and easy! Now the tree is up and our bellies are satisfied.
