A few nights ago, the Chef and I made a new recipe for Spanish Rice. I'll rather sheepishly admit that up until this point we used Knorr's Spanish rice but the recipe was changed recently and we were really disappointed. Later we found we were not alone, apparently some people are SO upset that they have taken to Knorr's facebook page with their thoughts.
We just cut our losses and admitted that we probably shouldn't have been eating packaged crap anyway. So the Chef had a recipe he'd been wanting to try with lots of fresh veggies.
It was very tasty but sadly one of those foods that just don't photograph well.
- 1 Green Bell Pepper, chopped
- 1 Red Bell Pepper, chopped
- 2 Rib of Celery, chopped
- 2 medium sized Onions, chopped
- 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
- 3 Cloves of Garlic
- 8 Ounces Tomato Sauce
- 1 Cup Long Grain White Rice
- 1 Cup Water (for Rice)
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
- 2 tsp Cumin
Chop all vegetables and saute in the oil in a large pan for about 5 minutes on medium heat. Add the sauce, rice, water, and spices and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. It is done when the majority of the liquid has been absorbed by the rice.
Hope you enjoyed this! Now we have something yummy and full of veggies to accompany our vegetarian tacos.
