Tomato Rice

Tomato Rice

About this recipe: I sometimes add veg and some precooked chicken or sausage for a main meal, but it can be a side dish also. It goes nicely with BBQ/Grilled food, espcially fish, and with a little sour cream on top.

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. 1 - Cook rice through, then rinse under cold water to seperate grains.
  2. 2 - Heat oil in a wok/frying pan, preferably non stick. Once hot, add rice and stir to cover grains in oil to prevent sticking. If adding any precooked meats, add them now.
  3. 3 - Add tomato & garlic puree's (or cloves) and sundried tomatoes (plus any other quick cook or precooked veg). Stir in covering all the rice until red.
  4. 4 - Pour lemon juice and soy sauce over the rice. Stir in soy sauce, it should darken the rice.
  5. 5 - Stir in Coriander if using
  6. 6 - Judge on colour and taste. Add more soy or tomato puree if needed. It should be a medium to dark red colour
  7. 7 - If it looks like the rice is clumping together, stir in a little olive oil or butter
  8. 8 - After a few minutes heating with occasional stirring, serve up.
