Spanish Rice

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Knitting Granny

This is my favorite "from scratch" recipe for Spanish Rice. It can easily be doubled or even tripled. Just be sure to use a heavy pan with a right fitting lid and the appropriate "headspace". The amounts of vegetables are variable - for instance, you could double this recipe even if you only had 1 small green pepper. You could also use long grain rice or even brown rice (adjust cooking time for the brown rice - about 50 minutes).

I made this as posted and am sorry to say this is not Spanish Rice....The rosemary was so over bearing I couldn't eat it. Without the rosemary and some other adjustments this might work.
