Tomato Rice

Tomato Rice created by Charlotte J

This is a very versatile Brazilian side dish. If serving with chicken, use chicken broth, if serving with beef, use beef broth. This isn't spicy, just a nice colorful side dish.

    This made a nice side dish. I did not peel the tomato but did de-seed it. Made for Please Review My Recipe 2012

    This was a great, easy side dish for enchiladas but I ended up finding it a bit bland. I added some cilantro and cumin to spice it up and it was perfect! Thanks for the post.

    Very flavorful! I used Basmati rice and chicken broth (needed the milder flavor since I was serving this with fish). Out of habit, I rinsed the rice until the water ran clear before I fried it. This will be a good switch-up to add to my side dish rotation instead of making Mexican rice all the time. Thanks for posting! Made for the Emerald City Shakers for ZWT7
