2
cups Long grain rice (Any white rice will do just fine)
1/4
cup canola oil
1
Yellow onion cut into one inch chunks (I find these are bulky for rice, so I use minced onion)
1
bell pepper, any color, chopped
3
cloves garlic or 3 tsp garlic powder
3/4
cup tomato puree, diced or sauce tomatoes work fine too
2
tsp sea salt
2 3/4
cups chicken broth
  1. Add the oil to the pan and put heat on to medium high. Add the rice and saute until golden brown approximately 10 - 15 minutes.
  2. Then add the onion and bell pepper and saute another 5 - 10 minutes. The important thing is to make sure the rice is toasted to a nice golden brown.
  3. Using a garlic press, add the minced fresh garlic by squeezing the press and cutting off the garlic as it comes out, with a knife. Continue to saute for an additional 3 minutes.
  4. You will notice a wonderful garlic aroma. Add the tomato puree, chicken broth and salt. Stir and turn heat up to high. Bring to a full boil while stirring.
  5. Continue to boil for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. When it's done, turn off the heat, remove the lid and you have just made delicious spanish rice!
