Hello!! 🙂 Ok, so I wasn’t really sure what to post today because I had so many different recipes in mind but not many ingredients in the fridge. Buttttt I did have some tomatoes and rice on hand and made this simple, seriously simple and fast dish for lunch. If you have never come across this type of recipe for rice you should absolutely try it out.
My diet plan for lunch today was boiled chicken again 🙁 but I have been eating chicken broiled, boiled, roasted, for almost the past 2 weeks, so enough with the chicken and on to something a bit more tastier. I cheat on my diet when the weekend comes around, buttt when I mean cheating no junk food!! but food with a bit more taste and so this rice and tomato dish at least to me will seem like I will be eating a slice of pizzaaaa..:) Yumm Yummmy
Prep Time: 10 minutes – Cooking Time: 15 minutes – Total Time : 25 minutes
6 large Tomatoes (grated)
1 tablespoon Tomato Paste
1 large Onion (diced)
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 1/2 cup White Long Grain Rice or Basmati Rice
2 tablespoon Sugar
1 cup of Water
Feta Cheese or Parmesan Cheese for Topping (optional)
In a large sauce pan pour in the Olive Oil and the diced onions, and sauté. Once onions are ready add in the tomatoes and the tomato paste, stir. Add in the rice and about 1 cup of water, (this all depends on what type of rice you will be using) salt, pepper & sugar. Let this boil until the rice has absorbed the tomato juice and water.
When it is ready set it aside for about 15 minutes to cool and then serve topped with Feta Cheese or Parmesan Cheese. 🙂 Yummmyyyy 🙂
That’s about it for now, have a great weekend everyone!! Back again on Monday 🙂
