- 1 cup Mitsides Parboiled Rice
- 2 cups boiling water
- 100g Mitsides Tomato Passata
- 1 tsp Mitsides Tomato Paste
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- ½ tsp cumin
- 2 tsp Mitsides Vegetable Powder
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ onion, chopped
Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the onion. When softened but before it browns, add the rice and continue cooking until the rice starts to get a golden colour.
Reduce the heat to low and add the boiling water, passata and paste. Stir and add the cumin, vegetable powder, salt and garlic powder. Bring to a boil, put the lid on and simmer for 10 minutes until all water has been absorbed. Turn the heat off, cover with a towel and let the rice sit for another 10 minutes to absorb all moisture.
You can use this rice as a side dish or you can use it as a topping for fajitas, burritos etc.
