Tomato Rice With Basil

Tomato Rice With Basil created by Inge 1505

Quick and simple, this is nice with any fried meat or fish. Serve something green like salad, green beans or peas alongside for a nice contrast of colors. NOTE: Edited version for improved rice-water-ratio.

    We enjoyed this recipe but I had to add considerably more water in an effort to get the rice properly cooked. All other ingredients were added as suggested in the recipe. It's a good tasting, healthy meal. We'll prepare it, again.

    Made this for lunch today and turned out great! I agree that it needs a bit more water or tomatoes (I used cut up frozen tomatoes from the freezer that I had from my mother this summer) and put more than a cup in, making this recipe turn out really good!

    I had to mess around with this because I had already dumped some rice in some water for another recipe (then realized I was missing an ingredient) so the amount of water I used might not have been right. I was also almost out of garlic so I only had one clove for a double batch. I used fresh tomatoes and dried basil. This was so good and easy, I am sure I will make it often! (Originally reviewed 4/8/10) Update: I made this again following the directions and think it does not have enough water as written. Some of the rice was not quite cooked. I would use 1 1/2 c. of water next time.

    I really enjoyed it! Awesome recipe. The only thing I would say is that I had to add more water during the cooking process. Also, steemed spinich was a great extra for it! Thanks again!
