Spanish Rice

BAKED SPANISH RICE

Easy baked Spanish rice that is perfect to fill a burrito or spice up your meal served as a side. I use my rice cooker for most of my meals but this bakes in the oven and give it a nice fully finished rice. While the pre packaged rice can be convenient, making your own is a healthier choice. The fresh ingredients come through and brighten up any dish you serve with this.

Ingredients

  • 2 Cup brown rice

  • 1 Chopped Shallot or 1/2 Onion

  • 1 Roma tomato

  • 2-2 Chopped garlic

  • 1 Cup Water

  • 1 Jalapeno (seeds optional!)

  • 1 1/2 Cup Veggie or Vegan Chicken broth

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Oil

  • 1 Tbsp Tomato paste

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375F
  • Add the chopped Onion, Garlic, Tomato and jalapeño to a food processor and combine until mixed add broth and water to heat in a pan on Med/low
  • Add the rice to a large baking dish, I used 9X13 and drizzle with oil
  • Pour heated mixture over the rice, cover with foil and bake for 45-60 min.

Notes

  • You can replace the water with more broth. I cook mine with water to keep the sodium down
  • ADD SOME VEGGIES! I don’t add any peas or corn because I normally cook many veggies in my meals. If you have some corn I highly recommend adding it when the rice is finished cooking.
  • Spicy friends, add some extra jalapeño or chipotle in adobo for some added heat!
