DIRECTIONS

  • Pour rice into a deep pot and stir in enough oil so that every grain is coated.
  • Cook rice on medium and constantly stir, using a spatula, until it becomes a light toasted color (20-25 min), be careful not to burn.
  • Add onion and green pepper, cook until they become soft, add more oil if needed.
  • Stir in tomato, cook for 2-3 minute.
  • Tilt pot, remove any excess oil w/ spoon.
  • Sprinkle bouillon and garlic salt over rice (DO NOT STIR).
  • Pour water over rice (DO NOT STIR), then cover.
  • Bring to a boil, then lower heat and cook for 25-30 min, or until most liquid evaporated (DO NOT LIFT LID DURING THIS TIME).
  • Pick out large pieces of veggies w/ a fork and discard, (this step may be omitted if you chopped your veggies, I have picky eaters).
  • *This rice actually tastes better when cooled, and then heated in the microwave, as any remaining liquid is evaporated.
