Since I can't eat entire tomatoes, I'm grateful for a recipe that uses tomato sauce instead of crushed tomatoes, etc. This recipe comes from Host Chelsie Kenyon on About.com's Mexican cooking forum. Thank you, Chelsie! Please see Chelsie's original recipe here at http://mexicanfood.about.com/od/quickmexicanrecipes/r/SpanishRice.htm You can make the salt nonexistent in this recipe by using no-salt tomato sauce and chicken broth.
- In medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add in garlic and onion. Saute 1-2 minutes until softened.
- Add in dry rice. While stirring, cook for about 5 minutes until rice is golden brown.
- Slowly add in broth and tomato sauce into rice, not directly onto hot pan. Stir; bring to boil.
- Turn heat to low and cover. Let simmer for 20 minutes.
- Fluff with fork.
