Meatless Monday – Spanish Rice

Published on

Spanish Rice

In keeping with our Taco Party theme over the past few weeks, I thought you might like to make a batch of Spanish rice to make the party complete. My version is made with brown rice, which is a little un-traditional but I believe it offers more flavor and it is so much healthier too.

Spanish Rice

  • 1 – 2 tablespoon oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • ½ bell pepper, diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • 1 cup brown rice (toasted in dry skillet)
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ -1 teaspoon salt
  1. In a medium pan with a lid, sauté onion and bell pepper in the oil.
  2. Add garlic and rice and continue to sauté for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add water and salt, bring to a boil.
  4. Cover with tight fitting lid and reduce heat to low.
  5. Cook for 60 minutes.
