1 ½ cups rice

2 ½ cups chicken broth

1 cup plain tomato sauce

3 cloves finely chopped garlic

¼ medium onion, chopped

2 Tbsp oil

4 Tbsp finely chopped parsley, optional


In a medium sauce pan, heat oil over medium heat.  Add the fresh garlic and onion and saute for 1-2 minutes until softened.  Add the dry rice and stir for about 5 minutes until rice becomes a golden brown color.

Add the broth and tomato sauce (slowly into rice, not directly onto hot pan!).  Add the parsley, if you're using it.  Stir mixture up and bring to a boil.  Turn the heat to low and cover.  Simmer for 20 minutes and fluff with a fork before serving.
