Vegan Spanish Rice


This goes great in burritos. And if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s nearby or you like to save a penny, you can always use 2 cups of cooked brown rice. (Take 2/3 cup uncooked rice in 2 cups of water and cook for about 45 minutes.)

It’s both the easiest and tastiest rice I’ve ever eaten, and takes only about 15-20 minutes when you start with precooked rice. How can you top that?

• 1 pouch Trader Joe’s Organic Brown Rice (it’s pre-cooked and frozen)
• 2 tablespoons oil
• 1 onion, chopped finely
• 1 small can tomato sauce (get one without corn syrup)
• ½ 4oz. can diced green chilies, drained (2oz chilies)
• ½ tsp. crushed garlic
• ½ tsp. cumin
• ¼ to ½ tsp. chili powder to taste

1. Heat the bag of pre-cooked rice (microwave 3 min. or stovetop 10-12 min.).
2. Meanwhile, in oiled frying pan, sauté onion. Add tomato sauce and seasonings and stir until well-blended.
3. Add cooked rice, and cook, stirring until tomato sauce thickens a bit, 7-10 more minutes.
4. Add green chilies and cook about 1 minute more as you stir.
5. Celebrate. Er, eat. Might wanna blow on it, but you may end up hurting your mouth anyway because it’s kinda hard to wait.
