I got this recipe from my MIL. It's a staple in our house. Its very good and very easy. You can play with the amount of rice, just remember to the water is double whatever amount of rice you use and don't lift the lid to peek before its done.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the rice and onion in oil, until onion is soft and rice is starting to turn golden over medium heat.
  2. (If possible, do not use a non-stick pan) Add water, tomato sauce, parsley, bouillon cubes and salt.
  3. Bring to a boil.
  4. Cover and simmer on low for 20 minutes.

Easy and delicious! Even my toddler approved and that's not always an easy task.

Love this recipe! It's so simple but it tastes so delicious. I followed the recipe exactly -- but I can see where it could easily have some additional ingredients added if one wanted to do that. The rice was very fluffy and it had such great flavor. I've already made it a few times and it's on the menu again for tomorrow night!!!

Very good and very easy. My husband and I decided at the last minute we wanted spanish rice and this worked pretty well. I didn't have any tomato sauce so I had to use catsup. That made it a little sweeter and we also didn't have parsley so we used cilantro. We loved the cilantro but not the catsup. We also said we would not add the salt since the chicken bouillon cubes are a little high in salt. We will use make again with tomato sauce and no salt. thanks for an easy fast good spanish rice!
