View in original language


Tempo de preparo

1 hour(s)


10 servings


  • Ingredients
  • Recipe
  • white rice1 cup
  • Peeled Tomatoes1 can(s)
  • olive oil2 tablespoon
  • finely chopped onion1 cup
  • finely chopped red bell pepper1 unit(s)
  • Salt1 teaspoon
  • water1 cup
  1. Start by separating all the ingredients. If you want, you can increase the recipe for this tomato rice, just double the quantities and you will have a recipe for 4 to 5 people. You will also need to separate a pan and a spatula or large spoon.
  2. Heat a pan with olive oil and sauté the onion until it begins to wilt and become transparent, at this point add the finely chopped bell pepper.
  3. After the peppers soften and the onion begins to brown, add the rice.
  4. Mix all the ingredients very well so that the rice is all wrapped in oil.
  5. Add the peeled tomato with all the sauce in the can. Mix very well.
  6. Add the water. At this point add the salt and pepper, which can be to taste! Cover the pan and cook until the rice is soft but there is still a bit of thicker liquid left in the pan.
  7. Tip: if you have vegetable broth at home, you can use it, as it will add a lot of flavor to your tomato rice.
  8. The idea is to serve a rice that is not dry and fluffy, but a creamier rice. Therefore, as soon as it is ready, serve it immediately so that it does not dry out.
  9. Take care when serving the dish. My final tip is to grind more pepper on the plate, drizzle with olive oil and, if you have a vegetable garden like me, enjoy and decorate your plate with your favorite aromatic herb. I chose basil today!
  10. And finally, two final tips:
  11. If you like cheese, know that buffalo mozzarella will go very well with this delicious tomato rice;
  12. The original tomato rice recipe is made with ripe, skinless tomatoes. If you're lucky enough to find ripe tomatoes, you can use 5 in place of the can!
