  2. In a pan lightly brown rice in E.V.O.O.
  3. When lightly browned add 1/2 of tomato mixture to rice, (save rest for next batch),
  4. Make sure all of the rice is coated and add your water, boulion and cilantro.
  5. Bring to a boil and cover with tight fitting lid and bring down to simmer for ten minutes, then turn stove off and let rice sit for another five minutes with lid on.
