From EatingWell:  May/June 2010

The key to nutty and flavorful Mexican rice is cooking the rice first in oil until it is nicely golden.

6 servings, about 2/3 cup each | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat a large heavy saucepan with a tight-fitting lid over medium heat. Add oil and rice and cook, stirring, until the rice is just beginning to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Add onion and salt and cook, stirring, until the onion begins to soften, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute more. Pour tomato sauce over the rice and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  2. Stir in broth and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until the rice is cooked, about 15 minutes. Stir in vegetables and serve.
