DIRECTIONS

  • Process tomato with water until pureed and smooth.
  • Rinse rice in a strainer under cold water until it runs clear- about 1 1/2 minutes. Shake to remove excess water.
  • Heat oil over medium-high heat in heavy skillet about 2 minutes. Cook onion and garlic until golden.
  • Add rice and fry, stirring until light golden, about 4 minutes.
  • Stir in tomato water mixture. Crumble bouillon and sprinkle over rice and water in pan.
  • Increase heat to medium high, and bring to a boil.
  • Cover pan and cook until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender, 10-15 minutes, stirring and checking rice often. Add more water if necessary, but rice is usually done before it sticks to the pan.
  • Stir in cilantro, mix in lime juice and adjust salt to taste.
