I'm looking for a authentic spanish rice recipe, does anybidy have one?
I'm making Dutch' enchilada recipe this weekend and would like to serve as aside dish.


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.
Here's mine. I have served it with Dutch's Enchiladas.
