    Here you go ....

    Spanish Rice

    ·2 tbsp olive oil (can use up to 1/4 cup)
    ·1 onion, chopped fine
    ·1 garlic clove, minced
    ·2 cups of medium or long-grain white rice
    ·3 cups* chicken or vegetable stock
    ·1 heaping tbsp tomato paste or 1 cup of diced tomatoes, strained
    ·Pinch of oregano
    ·1 teaspoon salt

    *Check the instructions on the rice package for the proportions of liquid to rice. They can range from 1:1 to 2:1. If your rice calls for 2 cups of water for every cup of rice, then for this recipe, use 4 cups of stock for 2 cups of rice.

    1.In a large skillet brown rice in olive oil, medium/high heat.
    2.Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, about 4 minutes, or until onions are softened.
    3.In a separate sauce pan bring stock to a simmer.
    4.Add tomato sauce, oregano, salt, and rice to broth. Bring to a simmer.
    5.Cover. Lower heat and cook 15-25 minutes, depending on the type of rice and the instructions on the rice package.
    6.Turn off heat and let sit for 5 minutes.

    Serves 4 to 6.
