This came out great! I used all the seasoning it called for but no salt or pepper. My family loved it and it was pretty simple. It did take a little longer than called for though. I think it needed to simmer about 30min. Definitely will make again. I will also mention I'm not the most experienced cook and this really did taste like it came from a good restaurant.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat water and bullion in separate pot or microwave to make broth.
  2. In separate saucepan add oil and brown rice until rice is golden brown color on medium/high heat.
  3. Add seasonings, garlic, and onion. Be sure to keep stirring rice so it does not burn.
  4. Add broth & tomato sauce. Boil for a second, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 25 minutes.
  5. Fluff and garnish with fresh cilantro if you like.
  6. Also, if you have a small can of corn you can add that at the same time when adding broth and tomato sauce -- .
